BET24 is back! This year, the event known for lasting 24 hours is split into two days – the 11th of April, and the 9th of May. Featuring the likes of Vasco Pedro (Unbabel) and Miguel Santo Amaro (Uniplaces), the first day will be focusing on top-notch speakers, who will share their vast experience with those present. Apart from this role of speakers in the panel, there will also be a series of challenges and workshops occurring throughout the day, which will give you a chance to learn from real-life startup scenarios and their respective challenges. The challenges are the following:

Startup 2.0

Restricted to established startups, this challenge serve as a catalyst and will award a €5K investment to the winning project.

Startup 1.0

This challenge is focused on brand new ideas, with the intent to help those who come up with them push their concepts towards reality. Participants will pitch their idea to a jury, who will then award the winner with a €1K investment and a trip to London’s Tech Hub.

Social Media Challenge

Aimed at those of you who are Social Media Gurus, this challenge will get you working in a team, solving a real-life social media problem from an established startup. The prize for the winning team will be a trip to the European Tech Hub.

Social Entrepreneurship Challenge

This one’s for the ones who want to make the world a better place. The challenge will require you to extract the best out of you and your team with the goal of creating an innovative, problem-solving idea from a social entrepreneurship point of view. After pitching your idea to a jury, you’ll be in the run for a €1K investment.

The second half of the event will only be on the 9th of May. At this event, the winners for each of the challenges will be announced.
