After two successful editions of MY-WAY’s Student Enterprise Conference, the Startup Europe projects DIGISTART and MY-WAY joined efforts to create We Start Lisbon, the European conference for students and young web entrepreneurs.
The one-day event is part of the Startup Europe comes to Universities week and will be held in the beautiful Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal on the 21st of October, 2016.
MY-WAY and DIGISTART are EU funded projects which are part of the Startup Europe initiative. Whereas MY-WAY focuses on enhancing and improving the role of student organisations, connecting them with web entrepreneurship initiatives and web/business experts for the benefit of young adults across Europe; DIGISTART’s focus is to provide an Europe-wide web entrepreneurship ecosystem by connecting two local ecosystems (Lisbon and Malmö) in order to help university students to develop business analytical tools for digital startups.
The projects joined forces to create “We Start Lisbon” – an event which will serve as a unique opportunity and meeting point for young entrepreneurs and students willing to launch their business to meet investors, mentors and other key players of the European startup ecosystem, network with peers, and learn new skills to pursue their dream. The event will also host a little job fair, which will connect students and young professionals with promising startups that are currently hiring. A great opportunity to join a fast growing tech company and learn about web entrepreneurship first-hand.
If you want to know more about social entrepreneurship, product development, copywriting, how to pitch investors, how to build a business network, how to raise funding and how to get the attention of the local and international media, then this event is for you! EU-Startups.com will also be present at the event to meet aspriring entrepreneurs, give PR advice for startups and to find some interesting stories to write about.
At “We start Lisbon” you’ll also meet some inspiring female entrepreneurs, learn about how and when to think about internationalisation and get valuable entrepreneurship advice on how to learn from failure.
