What
we offer
LANDING SUPPORT
The first step is always the hardest one. We help ventures setup in Silicon Valley by giving them a better understanding of the work culture and business environment. We also help them get support with everything else from basic logistics to immigration issues.
MENTORSHIP
Our list of experienced entrepreneurs and domain experts work with ventures to understand their goals and provide guidance and expertise in multiple areas. These experts offer their time and expertise because they often have a personal connection to Portugal or to the Portuguese Network. They want to be involved with the Portuguese tech scene. Many of them understand the cultural differences between the US and Portugal which helps fine tune their feedback.
NETWORKING
Our network expands way beyond the Portuguese Diáspora. Ventures come to us at many different stages of development. We leverage the depth of our network to connect entrepreneurs with the right people at the right time.
