inRes is a very early stage acceleration program for Portuguese entrepreneurial teams working in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), in Portugal. Offered by the CMU Portugal Program, which is funded by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, inRes provides 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).   

In the scope of the 2014 Edition of inRes, four teams of entrepreneurs - AddVolt-WeTruck, Displr, Followprice and Xhockware-YouBeep - were immersed in a high density environment of world-leading industry specialists and research groups, in a variety of technology and application areas.

________

inRes is a very intense and challenging program, and requires a strong commitment from the teams. It often pushes teams past their comfort zones, and requires them to work at a steep pace, cope with high levels of uncertainty, and constantly reach out for contacts to further build and validate their business projects.

The call for applications will be open from April 8 to May 8, 2015
