Bruno Azevedo

Our path on the School of Startups was an important moment for our growth as entrepreneurs and anticipated the implementation of our mission as a team and company. Before that, we developed technology and during the programme we got resources to develop value propositions for society, clients and partners.

The School of Startups was extremely important for our journey, since it has given us fundamental skills for the creation of a solid and robust company. The mentoring since the beginning of the programme was – and still is – absolutely essential for Wisecrop’s success.

Assuming that the majority of the Master and PhD students are unfamiliar with the entrepreneurship universe, UPTEC develop the School of Startups for Researchers. Designed and based on the School of Startups for Entrepreneurs structure, this programme is shorter, more intensive and specially aimed for researchers.
