Brace Yourself To The New ScaleUp Porto. Call For Activities!

With a very successful first edition, Porto challenges the ecosystem once again with the ScaleUp Porto. Call For Activities.

A true ecosystem can only exist when everyone collaborates, aligned under a mission. In 2017, Porto launched the ScaleUp Porto Call For Activities to increase the impact of the activities carried out by the city’s Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology community, so together we can promote an even more active and dynamic ecosystem.

Out of 50 submissions, 8 activities were selected, which took place till the end of 2017, involving more than 1,600 people, thus demonstrating the strong impact of the initiative and the city’s capacity to involve people.

From activities for makers to conferences on the future, from hackathons to technology exhibitions, from workshops to training programs, 16 open to the public events were held, ecosystem guides and a vlog show were produced, and much more happened.


The ScaleUp Porto. Call For Activities is back! Applications are open until March 4th, and applicants can be organizations with delegation or headquarters in the municipality of Porto. The activities must be focused on empowering, developed under the themes of Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology. After this date, the jury will decide, based on the impact that the proposals will have on the ecosystem, which projects are selected.

The Municipality of Porto will support the activities with 70,000 euros; each activity can receive a maximum of 10,000 euros. The financial support may not meet the total needs of the submitted project, but it can work as a good lever to the proposed initiatives.
