Lisbon Bootcamp 2023

5 days Lisbon Bootcamp

We're heading to Lisbon! Join us as we run the Entrepreneurship bootcamp at our co-working hub in Lisbon, Casa do Impacto.

I love Lisbon! It is a place full of energy, life, and vibrancy. I really love that you see the same faces around and how quickly you can form a diverse community. From a start up point of view it’s a great place to be because there are so many people working on entrepreneurial ventures and it’s fantastic because we can all help each other.

Entrepreneurship Bootcamp Overview

Have a business idea? Want to turn it into reality? Join us for an entrepreneurship bootcamp in Lisbon where we will take you through the key steps of testing your business idea and getting initial customer traction. 

Over the course of four days, we will dive into the most important topics any founder needs to think about:

  • How do I test the business idea in a systematic way to increase the chances of success?

  • How do I make sure my idea resonates with the target market?

  • Where do I find my first customers?

  • What is the initial product going to be?

Every morning we will have a workshop led by our in-house team of entrepreneurial experts, followed by an afternoon where you will have the time to work on your ideas guided by the experts roaming around to support you.

By the end of the week, you will have a good understanding of how to test your business idea, how to get your initial customers and what you could offer them. You will also have initial insights into whether you are on the right path and be equipped with the skills needed to go to the next level and get your first customers.

This week will also be a unique chance to meet some like-minded aspiring founders, explore the wonderful city of Lisbon and hear from the players in the local ecosystem.

My younger self wouldn’t have listened to any advice— but if I could talk to her I’d say it’s harder than you think. I’d say ‘Yes, this is tough, but it gets tougher. You don’t know what you don’t know, but you’re learning those things. Keep going. Wade through the darkness. Surround yourself with people further along the journey who can offer guidance and get off Tinder.
