Invited to be the Portuguese partner of the TechMatch Global initiative, ANJE was responsible for taking five Portuguese startups to represent Portugal at a world meeting of investors and entrepreneurs, which was held in Bratislava from 12 to 16 October 2015. In the capital of Slovakia, the five teams were given the opportunity to be included in a group of 60 international startups chosen to “match” with a world class group in terms of investment and mentoring: 20 corporate investors, five multinationals and five venture capitalists from Silicon Valley.
