Conheça o ecossistema de Startups de Lisboa


The International Start-ups Meeting (ISUM), spearheaded by international organization AIESEC Alumni, seeks not only to bring together the country’s most promising entrepreneurs but also to maximize their potential as entrepreneurial leaders. The program includes a series of activities such as leadership seminars, roundtable discussions, workshops, and some exciting start-up challenges, among other exciting events!
This year, AIESEC is bringing ISUM to Lisbon, on July 3-4, 2018, included in the AIESEC Alumni IberoAmerica priority projects for 2018.

- Pitch sessions and startup challenge
If you are ready to pitch in front of a jury of advisors and investors, ISUM will be your opportunity to test and receive immediate feedback. Generally structured as a 5 minute pitch and 10 minutes of questions & answers, each ISUM includes local best practices.

- Workshops and panel discussions
You will learn how to sort through new ideas from fellow entrepreneurs, market to target customers, write an effective business plan, build and manage your team, create partnership agreements, and raise funds with business angels and/or VCs.

- Exchange of experience among an international mix of startup founders
There will be several opportunities to meet entrepreneurs and investors throughout the session. Sharing ideas, successes and challenges may identify an idea that was successful in one country, and may be successful in your own country.

ISUM gives priority for registration to AIESECers and AIESEC alumni entrepreneurs but it is an open meeting: local entrepreneurs who are not AIESECers could bring attention to their startup as well, notably if they want their startup to grow internationally.

Join us and take on this challenge at ISUM Lisbon 2018.
