Nos passados dias 4 e 5 de Maio, o IPN promoveu o workshop "Pitching for Investors 2017", conduzido por Rick Salmon, no âmbito do programa ESA BIC Portugal.

Este workshop, dirigido a jovens empreendedores visou ajuda-los a comunicar a ideia de negócio, com base numa tecnologia espacial, de forma eficaz e num curto espaço de tempo. Os empreendedores do espaço que participaram neste workshop ficaram assim melhor preparados para angariar fundos, promovendo as suas competências na "preparação para o investimento".

Esta iniciativa destinou-se apenas a alguns empreendedores no espaço, promotores de startups do Centro de Incubação da ESA BIC Portugal. Este projecto é co-financiado pelo Centro2020, Portugal 2020 e pela União Europeia através do Fundo Europeu de Desenvolvimento Regional.
