The 2nd IE Venture Day Lisbon was part of the Lisbon Investment Summit , with more than 450 registered and 300 attendees organized in a joint effort of IE and Beta-I  with the participation of the European Commission.
Thanks to all the alumni that made it and especially to Domingos Cruz (CCA-Ontier, LLM 2006), our sponsor, and Pedro Trinite (TTR, International MBA 2007), Scott Witters (Glownet, MBA 2003) and Tobias Schirmer (BDMI, International MBA 2007), our speakers.
The winning startup, Pharmassistant, took home an 80K investment from Smart Equity .The jury responsible for evaluating the pitches of the startups included Mike Butcher (Techcrunch editor), Tobias Schirmer (IE alumnus and BDMI), Oriol Juncosa (Nauta Capital), Itxaso del Palacio (EC1 Capital), Paloma Castellano (Wayra) and Carla Pimenta (EDP Ventures). Vertequip  was the most voted project by the audience of more than 300 people and Coolfarm  was chosen as the best pitch.
Speakers and participants gave great praise: Mike Butcher said he’d be happy to promote next year’s event, Fausto Boni (360 Capital Partners) was overwhelmed with the high quality of the pitches, Oriol Juncosa said the event was excellent, many of the investors will follow up with one or more pitching startups and Anshuman Vohra (Bulldog Gin CEO) drove 6 hours, from and to the Algarve, on one day to be there!
