Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program Opens Call for inRes 2017
The Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program (CMU Portugal Program), funded by
the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia, is starting a new edition of the very
early stage acceleration program for ICT startups – inRes. Applications may be
submitted until May 4.
The business acceleration program starts with preparation workshops in
Portugal and follows with a seven-week immersion period in the United States, visiting Carnegie Mellon University campuses in Pittsburgh and in
Silicon Valley. It is aimed at "teams that have a business idea of a product or
service in the field of ICT in Portugal, to promote their development, not just
in terms of business development but including entrepreneurship training as
well", states CMU Portugal Program national director João Claro.
