Advantages of the ANJE incubation / acceleration network
What really sets the ANJE incubation / acceleration network apart is, on the one hand, the outstanding monitoring given to companies and, on the other, the effort made to adapt to local socioeconomic contexts.
In the first case, ANJE shares all the experience and know-how it has acquired in almost 30 years promoting young entrepreneurship. ANJE helps the companies by organising business events (pitching sessions, mentoring, acceleration programmes, fundraising, etc.), holding training courses, developing networking, detecting investment opportunities, attracting financing, promoting partnerships, preparing applications for incentives, defining internationalisation strategies and disclosing relevant information.
In the second case, it is about knowing the local reality and interacting with its main players in order to make the incubation suitable to the needs of each specific socioeconomic context. Its geographic scope is a clear advantage of the ANJE incubation / acceleration network, insofar as it makes it possible to meet the needs of young entrepreneurs not only in the large urban centres, such as Lisbon and Porto, but also in smaller cities – some of them far from the decision-making centres, such as Évora, Póvoa de Varzim or Faro.
