This year the PI Bootcamp will be held in partnership with CMU Portugal. After the bootcamp, participating startups will advance to an additional acceleration phase, during which they will receive support to expand and develop their businesses at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, USA.

Following the signature event, the first initiative resulting from this collaboration protocol will be the participation of CMU Portugal in the celebration of the second anniversary of the Haddad Entrepreneurship Institute at Nova SBE, on April 10, 2024, at 5pm.
