“Zero Gravity was the first catalyst for us. It allowed us to get into the Lisbon ecosystem, connect with different stakeholders when needed, as we were always supported by a young but driven team, while we kept our casual and sunny lifestyle.”
Participating in the program and getting the support from Zero Gravity was fundamental for our growth as a startup and as a team. They helped us develop Cargofive and enter the European market. Their team is fully committed to helping entrepreneurs and growing the ecosystem in Lisbon!”
Juan Francisco, CargofiveFounders
"Being on Zero Gravity was an experience that helped us build Cargofive, while learning a lot from the community built around us. Also, Lisbon is a great place to work in and for our case it was perfect for entering into the European market."
"Being in Zero Gravity and building Tuki in Lisbon was a life changing experience both for me and my startup Tuki. I substantially evolved as an entrepreneur and as a leader during the five months at Nova. Now I am more focussed and more confident. The core team works very hard and thanks to them we met a plethora of inspiring people every week. Zero Gravity being at the heart of entrepreneurship at Nova SBE meant Tuki was able to leverage substantially from the universities ecosystem. In addition to the professors and alumni that we connected with, Tuki, gained four pivotal members to our family, all of whom we would have never met if it wasn't for our participation in the program".
“Zero Gravity was quite an intensive program with a lot of mentors from different sectors. The best thing that I liked the most is the strong association with NOVA and having the school as main supporter. I think that gave a lot of value to program and to us, the founders, in general. We had a lot of intensive and useful meetings with professors and we had NOVA students as our interns which helped us cover tasks during the program.
Also, the program managers helped us a lot and they were very responsive.”
