Do you have a business idea with industrial application? We have the right program for you!


Set.Up Guimarães and TecMinho developed Set.Up IN (dustry), an intensive acceleration program that will transform new ideas into successful businesses, through a set of workshops and individualized coaching. The initiative will facilitate the connection between new startups and industrial companies in the Municipality of Guimarães, stimulating the growth of a new industrial culture in the region, based on innovative solutions.


Entrepreneurs, individually or as a team, can apply with creative, technological or knowledge-intensive business ideas. The program is looking for teams of entrepreneurs that are developing innovative projects, with market potential and impact in the region.


The program is divided into two distinct phases. In the first phase, the selected teams will have the opportunity to participate in a set of 8 acceleration workshops that teach about the various themes of the entrepreneurial journey (Voice of the Customer, Market and Competition, Strategy and Business Model, Finance, Sales and Digital Marketing, Prototyping and Productization, Internationalization and Pitch) and several hours of individual coaching to develop the business idea.


In a second phase, the selected teams will have access to industrial incubation in a company installed in the Municipality, to the assignment of a mentor in the industry and to specialized monitoring for the development of the business project.
