XII Venture Capital IT

We count with you to help us support this initiative!

The promotion of an entrepreneurial and innovative spirit isn’t a Portugal’s choice anymore, but a critical need.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP is, without a doubt, the driving force of innovation, growth and employment creation in the world economy. In a context of technological quick change, increasingly demanding by consumers and with more and more global competitors, it’s essential, to ensure prosperity of our society, that the entrepreneurial spirit can be disseminated and well treated.

In this context, Venture Capital IT, besides being an active debate and discussion meeting, promoting the suited conditions to foster entrepreneurship and its closeness to Venture Capital, by making presentations in both Elevator Pitch and private session formats presenting projects between entrepreneurs and investors, keeps being assumed as the main Event to show to the National Entrepreneurial Community the important evolutions registered in the domain of the named Public Policies to support Entrepreneurship and Business Financing.

We believe, as we did in VCIT’s first edition, that Entrepreneurship does not operate in vacuum and it can only prosper in a healthy Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in which the several stakeholders – entrepreneurs, investors, companies, universities, government, services suppliers, etc. – perform their role reducing the market’s information asymmetry once it’s proved that matching entrepreneurs and investors still isn’t easy.

Due to what was said we recommend an active presence in this Congress which makes more sense than ever in the present situation!

I count with you, and the remaining participants, to keep maintaining the significant Dimension that this Initiative has earned over a decade. [Complete Article]

“Venture Capital IT is the only national initiative dedicated to approach the themes Venture Capital, Business Angels, entrepreneurship and innovation, gathering in Lisbon several national and international specialists.

Venture Capital IT, besides being an active debate and discussion meeting, it also promotes the suited conditions to foster entrepreneurship and its closeness to venture capital, by making presentations in both Elevator Pitch and private session formats presenting projects between entrepreneurs and investors.”

    Meu Caro,
    Nestes dias, decorre o Congresso Internacional de Inovação Social, ao qual nao posso deixar de assistir, porque HOJE já nao é suficiente ser-se “apenas” empreendedor (em boa verdade, nunca foi, mas como no século passado se saía das “trevas”, desculpava-se) , mas temos a obrigacao de ser empreendedores sociais.
    Isto porque está provado pela situação a que o mundo atingiu, de crise económica fundamentalmente causada nao por falta de Empreendedorismo, mas de valores empreendedores.
    Quase se poderiam chamar a este tipo nao “Edge Funds”, mas “edge entrepeneurs”…
    Seria indelicado desafiá-lo aqui a uma Business Angels Social?
    Poderíamos começar por muitos caminhos.
    A incubadora de Social Spin da Universidade Católica, é um deles.
    Tem um mail de contato?
