Startup Challenge: the Eight Finalists Compete for a Spot in the Web Summit 2016 

A CMU Portugal inRes team, Xhockware, is one of the finalist startups competing today for a place in the Web Summit 2016, in Lisbon. The eight selected startups will present their final pitch today, the last challenge in the competition.

“It was extremely difficult to select the eight finalists. There were at least another 30 that could have been chosen, which proves the increasing quality of the Portuguese startup ecosystem”, admitted Jason Nadal, Development and Entrepreneurship director of Microsoft Portugal.

Xhockware is a startup created in Porto, incubated at the Science and Technology Park of the Universidade do Porto, Portugal, and one of the participating teams of the 2014 edition of inRes.
