What is inRes?

inRes, short for “Entrepreneurship in Residence”, is a very early stage acceleration program for entrepreneurial teams working in ICT in Portugal. inRes provides entrepreneurial teams a training period in Portugal, followed by a six to seven week structured immersion period in the US. The participating teams benefit from the exposure to a highly dense environment of world-leading research groups, and market and industry specialists, in a variety of high-tech areas. inRes is organized by the CMU Portugal Program, funded by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT), in partnership with Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Pittsburgh Regional Alliance (PRA), and INESC TEC.
