Lisboa Entrepreneurship Week is about to begin

Lisboa Entrepreneurship Week is about to begin

Beta-i is joining forces with Câmara Municipal de Lisboa to empower our Community with the best Lisbon Entrepreneurship Week ever. We’re opening the sessions to the community so every startup has a learning opportunity. So, from Monday May 14 until Friday May 18, everyone’s invited to join this entrepreneurship celebration.

The agenda is appealing but here’s only a few slots left for the workshops so be fast if you want to attend them. On Monday from 5pm to 6pm, at Beta-i’s 8th floor, there’s a workshop focused on Public Speaking. We know speaking in public can be frightening, there’s even a name for it, it’s called Glossophobia. Did you know that it’s one of the most common fears among humans?

This workshop given by Lerio Cunha, who has been traveling the World helping people overcome this fear and improve their communication skills, promises to help you face your demons and become a natural at speaking in public.

On Thursday from 5pm to 6pm also at Beta-i’s 8th floor there’s a workshop on “How to work your Customer Retention” given by Orlando Lopes, Co-founder at Eat Tasty. This workshop is for everyone who wants to raise their profit and increase their customer retention – the act of keeping current customers that you’ve already spent money acquiring. Did you know that  it costs up to 30 times less to retain existing customers than to invest in new ones? Learn with Orlando how to do it, he strongly believes customer retention is key to success.

Also on Thursday Beta-i is hosting a mee tup alongside Startup Portugal focused on Blockchain at 6pm. How is it going to work? There’s going to be one host from Beta-i and another one from Think Tank and two invited speakers. The meet up will last between 30 to 45 minutes with more 30 minutes for Q&A. The meet up finishes with a TGIT (Thank God it’s Thursday) on Beta-i’s patio.

Friday is set to be a full day. From 2.30pm to 4pm, at Beta-i’s 8th floor, the workshop given by Elsa Ferreira, Lean-Agile Coach at Farfetch, is focused on Lean-Agile Principles, “Do it right the first time”. Get ready for a tip and tool session that will teach you the art of doing things that deliver higher value right on the first try with the least waste. Expect a hands-on approach with examples from Elsa’s professional experience – it’s 29 years of experience.

Daniel Araújo’s Talk, Co-founder and CEO of, follows from 4pm to 5pm and from 5pm to 6pm it will be time for the Data Pitch – Demonstration Day, an open pitch session. If you’re not familiar with Data Pitch, it’s a EU funded open innovation programme focused on Open Data and delivered by Beta-i, Open Data Institute, University of Southampton and Dawex. Don’t miss the chance to get to know the best European Technological Innovation, meet the startups and watch them pitch during the Open Pitch Sessions.

The week ends with a TGiLEW – Thank God it’s Lisbon Entrepreneurship Week (from 6pm to 9pm), hard to pronounce but perfect to network and celebrate the end of a great week with a beer or two.

Hope you can join us in this celebration because an entrepreneurship week would never exist without entrepreneurs.
