Beta-i is one of the main entrepreneurship and innovation organizations in Europe. We help new and established businesses grow the startup way by running acceleration and innovation programs, organizing events, promoting investment and creating great workspaces at our hub.


Recognized as one of the world most active startup accelerators and by Wired magazine as “the top incubator in town”, since 2010 we have received 4000+ startup applications to our programs and accelerated over 600 startups, that have raised +60M, having also 12.000+ people attending our events.


We’ve accelerated over 500 startups in the last 6 years, more than 50% are not from Portugal. We understand foreign companies’ needs and we have put together a network of business advisors that can help companies establish faster.


Lisbon is rising as one of the most attractive cities for startups around the world. Even the Web Summit, the biggest startup conference in the world, has chosen Lisbon over great hubs, such as Berlin and Paris.

The city provides great access to talent, affordable housing, adequate public transportation, low cost of living and a great weather.

Considering these factors, it is no surprise that Lisbon has been positively mentioned by TechCrunch, StartUs and many other relevant startup media.

Another very important factor is that Portuguese startups usually launch their projects already thinking about the international market. The combination of these characteristics makes Lisbon one of the most attractive city for startups, especially for those who want to enter the European market.
