Caixa Capital will be investing 100.000€ in a startup from the 2nd batch of the Startup Braga Acceleration Program. Besides this 100.000€, the selected startup will have a chance to compete with others to win another 100.000€ in the “Caixa Empreender Award” event happening in January 2016.
According to Tiago Gomes Sequeira, Director at Startup Braga:
“This partnership is a recognition of the work we have been doing at Startup Braga and it only shows that Startup Braga is the place to start and grow startups. With the success of our first program, the expectations for the second one are even higher and we are working hard to create the perfect environment for startups. For us, this partnership is the cherry on the top of the cake”.
Applications for the 2nd edition of the Startup Braga Acceleration Program will be open until March 15. In this second batch, the focus will be on Mobile, eCommerce, Medtech and Nanotech. In the 3 months of the program, the selected startups will have access to workshops, mentorship from over 50 entrepreneurs, investors, industry experts and executives and office space open 24/7.
