Is Beta-i a Portuguese government entity, an NGO or an Association?
No. We have started as an Association, but we’ve become a private company. We were never sustained by government grants or funds.
Does Beta-i work only for and with startups?
Not at all: Beta-i’s main revenue stream comes from corporations and public institutions. Startups are, however, part of our DNA, as boosting their growth is part of our mission. Also, the way to deliver tangible innovation for clients comes from the startup way of work
Which kind of innovation does Beta-i deliver?
Our work is about making tangible outcomes. We have 10 years of constant fieldwork in this universe, so we know how hard it is to make innovation results visible to the parts involved.
Our projects’ purpose is to create change through action (cultural impact) and results (growth impact).
