Our Team

Who makes 351 Startups?

Established in 2019, 351 Startups brings together founders and ecosystem players, providing an open space for collaboration.

Due to exceptional growth, we decided, in September 2022, to formalise our structure in an NGO. Today, we are the Portuguese Startup Association, solidifying our position as one of the country’s biggest support structures for entrepreneurs.

Withe over 1600 members, we are the largest and most active Startup Community in Portugal, including startups, companies, investors, and accelerator managers. Our weekly activities and 15+ national initiatives contribute to the thriving entrepreneurial landscape.

351 Startups is backed by several founders & ecosystem players.
