Business incubators are privileged spaces for everyday networking between entrepreneurs. Developing contacts in a hallway conversation or during a coffee break can make a difference for your business. But when the community grows too much, it becomes harder to know everyone and everybody. And good opportunities can be missed!
Since we consider networking to be one of the key points in startup incubation, we created IPN Lanches. Since 2009, we have brought together startups, entrepreneurs and other players in Coimbra?s innovation system every month. Incubator companies present themselves to their peers, and sometimes we bring outside guests. From entrepreneurs to investors, maestros to psychologists, many are the guests who have gone through the 20 editions of IPN Lanches. After a hiatus in 2013, we returned in 2014 with the "IPN Lanches - Meet your neighbours" series where companies from the incubator and accelerator present themselves to the community.
