Startup Pirates Battle - 2011
November 19, 2011 - Porto

The event was a success and we are very happy with the feedback we received.
Our goals were accomplished: we wanted to organize an event to promote Portuguese startups and we wanted to create funding opportunities to those startups. Besides, we wanted to celebrate the Global Entrepreneurship Week by bringing together entrepreneurs, startups, wannabe entrepreneurs, investors and incubators.

It was a very intense day. Throughout the day, startups were competing with each other, by pitching their products/services and business models, for a place in the final round.

Besides the Startup Competition and the Startup Fair, we also had a Conference with Diamantino Costa, co-founder at Critical Software, Vítor Dinis, CFO at Pathena, Ricardo Diniz, sailor and serial entrepreneur and Alex Barrera, Spanish serial entrepreneur and one of the promoters of the Tetuan Valley and Startup Bootcamp Madrid.

  7. 7. Testimonials Nuno Pereira (Powa) "All the good vibe of the event was made possible thanks to the fantastic energy of the start-ups and all other participants! Thank you“ David M. Pereira (InPhytro) "The comments of the jury were very useful to improve some aspects of the Project, sometimes they made us think about topics that we have never thought about. It’s a recommended event!"
  8. 8. Testimonials João Figueiredo (Ex-libris) “Startup Pirates Battle has so far been the best experience Ive had regarding contests(…): 1. The feedback is immediate. In most innovation/entrepreneurship contests we have to wait months for results, and we never know exactly why we win, and even worse, when we lose we don’t know what to fix. 2. Prizes doesn’t matter. Your emphasis on "Glory" and the pleasure of the competition is undoubtedly the right motivation that appeals to a new generation of entrepreneurs.“
