HYPE Labs, a Portuguese startup that built a technology that allows any app or device to communicate even offline, was selected for Angel Pad accelerator – #1 U.S. Accelerator by MIT’s U.S Seed Accelerator Rankings.

HYPE Labs was founded in 2014 and has HQ in Porto, having previously been part of UPTEC’s Startup Acceleration Program (2014), Startup Braga’s Acceleration Program (2015) and HUB:RAUM WARP Acceleration Program (2015).

Now the evolution takes HYPE to NY as the first Portuguese startup ever present at that accelerator. The program will take 3 months and will open big doors in the most competitive market in the world, for sure.

When asked why he applied to Angel Pad, Carlos Lei Santos, Hype Labs Co-Founder & CEO, has a prompt answer:

We applied because of the relevance Angel Pad has in the ecosystem. We recognize the quality of their portfolio of invested companies, the great support they offer and also the people that are moving this accelerator forward.

And what do these next 3 months mean for the future of HYPE?

Getting in Angel Pad means to be invested by them, in many ways.

One more Portuguese startup going global. The future looks good!
