Even when you think you have it all figured out – your business idea is so good you will sell thousands and you will get rich or die trying — you need to stop for a moment and get some insights from people other than your friends and family (as in, your mother will always brag about your business but your customers won’t – unless you do things right).
And that’s where we come in…
Beta-start is here to push you off the cliff (not literally I guess) and help you build your product on the way down. No safety nets or safe landings, this is the real deal.
You’ll get to talk to talented entrepreneurs and be mentored by them. They’ve done it once before, some have failed, others have not, and you’ll get to learn from all those experiences and test your own theories.
Beta-start is all about trial and error. We give you the right tools and it’s up to you to put it into practice. You’ll learn all you need to know to start your own business: lean methodologies, how to design a business model and build a product, work on your marketing strategy and learn how to deliver the perfect pitch.
Our pre-accelerator for idea stage startups, is already going for its 12th run and we know exactly what we’re doing. We’ve seen startups such as GetSocial, Pumpkin or Line Health take their very first steps and we want to keep pushing bold entrepreneurs forward and help build the next generation of startups, from Lisbon to the world.
If you’re a passionate, resilient and ambitious entrepreneur who is just getting started with your business come and talk to us. We have open applications until the 7th of February.
