BGI IUL MIT Portugal (Building Global Innovators)

BGI IUL MIT Portugal (Building Global Innovators) is an American style world-class tech start-up accelerator from ISCTE & MIT Portugal. With eight editions of our acceleration program, we have raised over 111Mio €, accelerated 126 start-ups, with an incredible start-up survival rate of 75%. We have been the accelerator that has raised more money in Portugal, and we considered top 20 in Europe (by Fundacity) and top 100 in the World (by HotTopics). From our accelerator program, we provide 3 bootcamps (2 in Lisbon and 1 in Boston) and an intensive weekly mentoring program, so the start-ups can develop and validate their business model with industry experts. Once they are ready we present them to investors. Due to our history routs with MIT, Deshpande Center and Martin Trust Center, our network is mainly from these ecosystems, namely Boston USA. However, after being selected by EIT Climate KIC and EIT Digital to represent Portugal in these initiatives (e.g. Acceleration and ideation programs), our network in Europe is also growing and we are at the moment negotiating network expansion to Asia. Our acceleration program is focused on early stage deep technology start-ups that want to start commercialization or scale up in the following areas:

  • Medical Devices & Health Care
  • Smart Cities & Industrial 4.0
  • Enterprise IT & Smart Data
  • Water Economy
