This is what I asked Bruno today: “Can I join you?” Bruno is based in Porto, a city in the north of Portugal, and his dream of bench-marking and spotlighting the Porto startup scene all across Europe is just starting. He calls it the ‘Grand Startup Tour’ (Update – February 2023: The website seems to be out of use, and we therefore deactivated the original link).
Bruno took a camera and a backpack, and is flying from Porto to Zurich. He did his first video interview in Porto with some familiar faces, known as the Startup Pirates (Update – February 2023: The Startup Pirates website seems to be out of use, and we therefore deactivated the original link), and in the coming weeks he will be doing the same gig in at least 7 cities. He didn’t tell us yet where he’s going, but I’m betting he does have the plane tickets bought and the couch space booked. So, startup people of Porto, invite him to pitch your startup. To all others: why don’t you follow him and find out at what cities he’ll be going to? I’m betting Germany comes right after.
We met today at the Porto Startup Coffee monthly gathering. I also asked Bruno what the catch is, and he told me “I’ll be meeting fantastic people, including entrepreneurs, programmers, incubators, venture capitalists and folks who just wanted to offer me a couple of beers”. That’s great Bruno, and we at EU-Startups.com give you the high five as a friend who shares our vision to connect the European startup scene and to encourage entrepreneurship within Europe.
If you want to cheer Bruno’s effort, tweet him @startuptourtv or contact him on Facebook. And by the way, suggestions for Season Two are welcome.
By the way: You can find out about other interesting startups from Porto in this list.
I really like the idea of the Grand Startup Tour. Have a nice trip, Bruno! 🙂
