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!



In case you're arriving in Lisbon to participate in an accelerator or any incubator in the city ecosystem, you can apply to Casa Startup Lisboa, our residence for entrepreneurs.
