WELCOME TO ICT15! 

There’s a lot of things going on here this week… all kinds of talks, panels, exhibitions. ICT15 is really a world of its own. And, there’s considerable part of that world, that you should definitely check out if you want to know the latest trends in tech and startups in Europe. Startup Europe Forum will gather the main players from the European startup scene for some inspiring talks, discussion panels, presentations and startup pitches. Tag along and check out the Startup Europe Forum agenda for the week.

The European Accelerator Summit gathers the world’s top accelerators in Lisbon, such as Seedcamp, Techstars, Startup Bootcamp and Numa, for a whole day at the Beta-i HQ, to discuss the future of acceleration. We will have collaborative sessions to define the best practices in acceleration and create synergies amongst all the key players, to build stronger startup ecosystems.
TechCrunch is coming to Lisbon for a Meet-up and Pitch Off, with Mike Butcher, its Editor-At-Large. We’ll have a few drinks with a beautiful view over Lisbon at Silk Club, talk about business, hear some amazing pitches and network.
