inRes 2014: Very Early Stage Acceleration Program

inRes, short for “in Residence,” is a very early stage acceleration program for entrepreneurial teams working in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), in Portugal, offered by the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program.

The program is targeted to entrepreneurial teams that:
  • want to start a company and commercialize a technology; 
  • have proven technical feasibility of their product or service; 
  • have had enough initial interaction with their target markets and industries, to have minimally consistent product or service and business concepts; 
  • and are not yet established companies regularly selling their products or services. 
inRes will provide entrepreneurial teams a training period in Portugal, followed by a six-week structured immersion period in Pittsburgh, in the U.S., anchored at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). The participating teams will benefit from the exposure to a highly dense environment of world-leading research groups, and market and industry specialists, in a variety of high-tech areas.

The applications for the inRes 2014 Call will be open until April 30, 2014!
