Early stage high-tech new ventures, in particular academic spin-offs, led by less experienced entrepreneurs,
often have human and social capital gaps.
Entrepreneurial teams in these
contexts often lack:
specific competences for the management of
early stage technology businesses
mentoring and contacts with
potential advisors contacts with potential customers,
partners, industry experts, and funding
As a consequence, they may develop more slowly
and with inferior performance
2015 Edition of inRes
Problem Addressed
www.cmuportugal.org
•  inRes seeks to address these hurdles by providing inRes teams a training period in
Portugal, followed by a two-month structured immersion period in Pittsburgh, in the
U.S., anchored at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU).
•  inRes teams will benefit of an environment with a high density of world-leading
research groups,  as well as market and industry specialists, in a variety of high-
tech areas.
•  Principles of Steve Blank’s Lean LaunchPad Methodology
•  inRes is a natural step for the CMU Portugal Program. Since its inception, and
through its multiple initiatives in education, research and innovation, the Program
has directly contributed to the creation of 10 startups.
