Building a more collaborative ecosystem in Portugal

Welcome to the community!

We are the largest and most active startup community in Portugal!

351 was born in 2019 as an informal gathering of entrepreneurs, startup founders and ecosystem players. Since then, we have become the largest and most active startup community in Portugal with over 1200 active members and multiple weekly initiatives.

To better support our members and grow the startup ecosystem in Portugal, we have now become an Association. But our DNA and our mission remains unchanged.

Above & beyons Community Hangouts by Startup Portugal

Organized by Startup Portugal every last Wednesday of the month in Lisbon and Porto, this hangout for the entrepreneurial community aims to bring together all players in the ecosystem to discuss the community’s challenges.

A place to share wisdom

As well as our popular live community events and partnerships, we have a busy Slack community where fellow founders and ecosystem partners contribute wisdom and support. Online we have many channels of curated content: events, news, advice, job listings and startup opportunities updated every day by people who work on them.

We are here to help you keep up to date with the ever-growing startup scene in Portugal. If you are new to Portugal, we have connections and resources to help you settle in. Our arms are open and every member is reachable without a middle person.

If you believe in building meaningful long-term relationships instead of handing out business cards, the 351 Community is for you.
