CMU Portugal inRes Initiative Presentation April 2014

Download to read offline

inRes, short for “in Residence,” is a very early stage acceleration program for entrepreneurial teams working in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), in Portugal, offered by the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program.
The program is targeted to entrepreneurial teams that:
want to start a company and commercialize a technology;
have proven technical feasibility of their product or service;
have had enough initial interaction with their target markets and industries, to have minimally consistent product or service and business concepts;
and are not yet established companies regularly selling their products or services.
The Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program, funded by the Portuguese Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT), is responsible for the coordination of inRes, in partnership with Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Pittsburgh Regional Alliance (PRA), and UTEN Portugal.
