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.
