We’re almost sold out for our first Masterclass on Design Thinking with Bill Burnett from Stanford University and 7 years designer at Apple, we’ve been having amazing interviews for Lisbon Challenge, we’ve just announced that we’re organising our first talk on innovation for big corporations, and today we’ll have the first event, co-organised with Landing.jobs, on how Lisbon can become Europe’s tech capital.

Wow, that was a long sentence… I seriously need to catch my breath.

Check out our updates and startup news and see all the events you should attend.
