HiTech 2019 Midterm Session

Porto Business School received HiTech Midterm Presentation, which took place on the 16th of May.

Last 16th of May, we had the HiTech Midterm session that had a panel of specialists composed by Luísa Ribeiro (Pathena), Pedro Araújo (ACS), Pedro Moura (Merck), Pedro Pinheiro (Yoda Partners). The goals of this session were: (i) provide teams independent feedback and test the robustness of the work done until now and (ii) acquainting teams with the kind of questions that could appear in real presentations to investors.

During the session, the 10 teams, from Lisbon and Porto editions, made a four-minute presentation in order to describe their projects, paying particular attention to the subjects that have already been covered in this first phase of the program: problem and need description, presentation of the technology developed by researchers, of the product generated by the technology, the market in which the product will fit and the existing competition.
