Facts speak louder than words

Last year, our students had the opportunity to work with 21 different Portuguese startups and the feedbacks were amazing! 

Great group, really eager to add value. Happy to host a new group again!

Stephan Morais, Indico Capital Partners

Welcoming the students of program Beyond the Atlantic at Aptoide was a rewarding experience. Looking into our business landscape from a different angle, they were able to share with us a fresh vision and develop interesting strategies. We strongly recommend the program.

Paulo Trezentos, Aptoide

In 2019 we hosted some amazing students from various Schools in the USA. I can truly say that these are the kind of experiences that benefit all that have the privileged to be part of this wonderful program. We get to see how similar we really are across the Atlantic and how together we can learn, achieve and produce so much more. Without a doubt everyone benefited from the experience and became not just more capable professionally but also a much improved human being as we learnt from each other. We need to encourage more bridge building between our countries and our students as only then will we achieve the best results possible for us all. Let’s keep making friends, learning and having fun one visit and experience at a time.
