IC² Global Startup Program - 2014 CALL FOR APPLICATIONS


Powered by the IC² Institute at The University of Texas at Austin, the UTEN Portugal Program began in 2013 with the mission to provide business development, soft-landing, incubation, and acceleration opportunities to Portuguese technology-based companies. Its purpose is to assist the success of Portuguese entrepreneurial endeavors in different phases of development:

  1. Early stage startup ventures: typically based on a technology that is under development, no sales, and ambitions to move to the United States to obtain funding, development, and commercialization roadmaps.
  2. More mature ventures, typically with sales in domestic markets, that desire to initiate the internationalization process in the United States and other international markets. In such cases, the IC² Institute team will work with company leaders to develop a commercialization plan and conduct business development activities with the goal of closing deals in the United States.

Although Austin is the central doorway to the North American market, the Institute makes use of its network to reach other points of market entry as appropriate to each company. The CEO, co-founders, and leaders of these ventures should have the capacity to support travel and accommodation in the United States for short term stays (typically 1 to 2 weeks long when needed) to work with the Global Startup Team. For companies that wish to have a constant presence in Austin - encouraged, but not mandatory - office space next to the Austin Technology Incubator (ATI) is provided for free during the first year enrollment in the program.

This program builds on the experience from the past edition of US Connect in 2011 and 2013 that has produced excellent results for Portuguese startups such as Bioalvo, Feedzai, Technophage, Innovapotek, Tecla Colorida, Tuizzi, Omniflow, Auditmark, Abyssal, and Celfinet, both in terms of business development, incubation, and closure of deals.
