About #LIS15 - Lisbon Investment Summit:
Lisbon Investment Summit is an investment extravaganza that connects the best international startups with Europe's top tech investors, business angels and VCs. Following on the huge success of the previous editions (which were featured on TechCrunch and Tech.eu, besides all the major TV and radio stations in Portugal), we're expecting another sold-out event with presentations from the handpicked Lisbon Challenge startups, as well as investment panels and unparalleled networking opportunities.
#LIS15 is powered by Beta-i, in partnership with IE Business School and Caixa Capital.
