Lisbon Investment Summit 2016 is organized by the Beta-i in partnership with IE Business School and Caixa Capital, and takes place at the Palacio Pombal on 7th and 8th June 2016.

Beta-i is a non-profit organization, established to create and foster a networking culture and entrepreneurship. It was considered to be the largest startup and investment promoter by the European Enterprise Promotion Awards in June 2014.

This year 2016 Lisbon Investment Summit represents a gathering of startups and investors from around the world, featuring various workshops, real estate investment pitches, panels, concerts and DJ sets. Among other exclusive activities there are: investors breakfast, yacht coctails and the speakers dinner, ending with a grand party. After the success of the previous summit editions, the Beta-i highlights that this event is about to be sold out and achieve even greater success. The ticket prices vary between from €69 up to €699, depending on a chosen package.

There are several keynote speakers to be present at this conference, including the Mayor of Lisbon - Fernando Medina. Among others you will have a chance to meet David Rowan (editor of WIRED Magazine); Saul Klein (fouding partner of Local Globe), Marvin Liao (500Startups), Ragnar Sass (co-founder of Pipedrive), Paulo Trezentos (CEO of Aptoide) and Hussein Kanji (investor in Hoxton Ventures).

Participating investors are: Atomico, e.Ventures, Hoxton Ventures, Faber Ventures, Notion Capitals, 500startups, and Caixa Capital among others.

Beta-i recommends that business angels and venture capitalists from all around the globe meet Lisbon startups before others, stressing that the Portuguese capital has been referred to as the "New Berlin" or the "Silicon Valley of Europe". But the Beta-i argues that "we do not need to be the Silicon Valley of Europe, we can be Lisbon."

The organizer emphasizes that the edition of the event in 2015 was a great success, and since then Portuguese startups like Uniplaces, Talkdesk, Veniam, Aptoide and Outsystems raised over €130 million in investments.Lisbon Investment Summit 2015
