Lisbon Startup Ecosystem
Although Lisbon’s startup ecosystem is still in relative infancy compared to other European cities, it’s steadily growing, making a name for itself as a city for entrepreneurs.
Lisbon has one of Europe’s highest numbers of STEM graduates as well as a high level of fluency in English, all contributing to its success as a startup city.
The Portuguese government has also invested a lot into developing Lisbon’s tech industry. In November 2022, Lisbon’s Mayor will open a new project called the ‘Unicorn Factory,’ a hub to host hundreds of startups worldwide. The project is to cement the Portuguese capital as an innovation center in Europe by attracting large and smaller businesses, which will help accelerate growth.
The city has become well known as a hub for remote workers from all over the world. The non-habitual tax residency allows tax breaks for those earning foreign income and a flat rate tax for those working in tech. Another attractive initiative launched by the Portuguese government for foreign entrepreneurs and tech talent is the D7 ‘Digital Nomad’ visa.
An extensive schedule of international tech events makes the city very welcoming for foreigners. Web Summit is one of Lisbon’s most well-known gatherings of investors, entrepreneurs, and experts.
There’s a growing presence of investment in Lisbon, with foreign investors becoming more interested in Lisbon-based companies. Dealroom estimates Lisbon startups are currently worth $2.1 billion.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.
To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.
Here are some tips.
- Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
- Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
- Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
- Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
- Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
- Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
- Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
- Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
- Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
- Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).
Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
