Lisbon's Incubator

Startup Lisboa supports the creation of companies and their first years of activity. Founded in 2012 it's a private non-profit association that provides entrepreneurs with office space as well as a support structure - mentoring, strategic partnerships and perks, access to investment, networking activities and a community based on knowledge and sharing.

Startup Lisboa promotes contacts with partners and potential customers. The dynamism, the people we know, the credibility and the projection that it gives our business makes Startup Lisboa a great place to consolidate an idea and make it a serious company with global ambitions.

Rua da Prata, 80

Opened in February 2012, the Startup Lisboa's HQ is a renovated six-story building with 200-year-old, where over 40 startups are boosting the entrepreneurship scene. Space features private office for each startup, coworking room for smaller teams, flexible 60 square meters room (can be converted into three meeting rooms), video conference room, dining room, kitchen, and lounge. 
 

Rua da Prata, 81

In the summer of 2015, we opened a second building, right in front of the first one. Original from the 18th century, its first two floors were renovated to accommodate bigger teams.
The Silver Street (Rua da Prata) has become even more vibrant!
