Hello fellow founders!

Techstars Lisbon in partnership with Semapa Next is looking for amazing teams that are solving big problems in the manufacturing, environmental, transportation, logistics, travel and leisure industries. While our applications are open, we prepared several ways to engage with you – from in-person meetups to 1-on-1 office hours to online webinars.  

First and foremost, we want to meet in-person as many of you as possible – so I will be visiting cities across North America, Europe, and Asia doing office hours with local startups, hosting presentations and generally trying to connect with as many great entrepreneurs, community leaders, investors and others as possible. Have a look at the locations below and sign up for the meetups in your city:

Alongside these events, I love to talk with startups about product-market fit, growth hacking, business model design, funding strategies and more. I’m offering mentoring via one-on-one meetings every week in Lisbon and in each city I’m traveling to until November 11th when applications close. So let me know if you’d like to chat – just sign up below for more.
