PAES Acceleration Program
PAES Accelerator (Programa de Apoio a Empreendedores Sociais) is a 9-month program – elaborated by Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa with the support of Impact Hub Lisbon – to empower impact-driven startups. The purpose is to help the participants validate their business model during a intensive bootcamp. Then, 12 social ventures were selected for a 3-month acceleration phase. From these 12 Portuguese startups, 3 finalists joined the internalization phase and get access to training, mentoring and networking sessions at Impact Hub Berlin.
Who are the 3 finalists?
From the bootcamp to the acceleration phase, we were thrilled to witness the empowering journey the participants have gone through – with a great spirit of collaboration. The 3 finalist were:
- SPOT GAMES, startup that designs games to foster learning and active citizenship through fun and interactive experiences
Rádio Miúdos, an educative radio powered by kids for kids
Negócio Social Sustentável 55+, an online platform for wellbeing and active aging
Congrats to SPOT GAMES, the Winner of the 1st edition of PAES!
