This will be an excellent opportunity to get to know more about this pioneering initiative that enables entrepreneurs to embrace an enriching journey shared between Portugal and the United States! In 2015, the teams have had the opportunity to be exposed to the entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystems of Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh, and the Silicon Valley!

inRes 2015

Launched in 2014 by the CMU Portugal Program, funded by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (Portuguese funding agency), inRes is a very early stage acceleration program for Portuguese entrepreneurial teams working in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) that push them 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. inRes is based on the Lean LaunchPad method. inRes provides a training period in Portugal, followed by a seven-week structured immersion period in Pittsburgh, in the U.S., anchored at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). inRes is organized by the CMU Portugal Program, in cooperation with Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Caixa Capital, Pittsburgh Regional Alliance (PRA), UTEN Portugal, and INESC TEC. inres@cmuportugal.org
