WHAT HAPPENED IN 2017… THE RESULTS HAVE OVERCOME THE EXPECTATIONS
2017 was marked by the public launch of Grow.
Almost a year later, we are proud and excited about the results so far.
During 2017, we were active in multiple events and ran acceleration programs and hackathons to respond to concrete challenges of José de Mello Group.
Today we are able to claim that we are recognized as a player in the Portuguese startups ecosystem.
We talked with more than 200 startups with innovative solutions in the Mobility, Chemicals and Health sectors, which resulted in 7 partnerships (Biomode, Mapidea, Nutrium, PeekMed, Sword Health, Stratio and Uphill).
We have launched Grow’s Mentors Network, with more than 30 top managers of José de Mello Group, available to advise and guide startups.
Thank you all for your participation and enthusiasm about Grow. We would like to extend a special thank you note to our Advisory Board (Alexandre Barbosa, António Murta, Hugo Gonçalves Pereira and Pedro do Carmo Costa).
Looking forward for 2018!
LET’S WORK TOGETHER,
The Grow Team
