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!
