If you’re always sailing across the Lisbon’s Startup scene you must definitely anchor at Mercado da Ribeira next Friday, December 4th. A Demo Day event for the startup programs Lisbon Challenge and Beta-start called Fast Track Lisbon will be hosted by Beta-i.

The programs have been hosting and launching some great startups like Uniplaces, the online student accommodation platform and Line Health, the innovative creator of a smart pill dispenser. Actually, both startups very recently got new great investments.

Speaking, Mentoring and Discussing

Great speakers such as Andy Carvell, will be here to share their story. Andy, Soundcloud’s Growth and Retention Lead, will explain how the music streaming and audio sharing platform reached around 250 million users and was valued itself at $700 million.

Marvin Liao is also flying all the way from San Francisco. The Partner at 500 Startups, will take part as a speaker and a mentor along with the directors of Lisbon’s startup programs Lisbon Challenge and Beta-start.

Live Mentoring Sessions on stage and One-to-One Meetings will also take place and are open for anyone who has a startup, all you have to do is apply by the end of today.

And of course, at an event like this, the hot topics of the day may never be forgotten and that is why there will also be interesting discussion panels on the “Web Summit Fever” and “Ingredients for Success” – not to be missed.


It is imperative that some of the most promising startups in the city tell the world (almost) all about their business.

Mercado da Ribeira will eagerly hear the pitches of startups like Knok, the portuguese based uber for doctors, Attentive, a portuguese innovative assistant for professionals, Quotanda, from Spain, introducing a student financing platform and even Remidi, coming from Italy and turning your hand into music.

Pitching at Demo Day will also take a different route with the Investors Reversed Pitches: it’s time for the investors to talk about themselves and answer every single question that the startupers in the audience have for them.
