Measure 4: Provision of support to new businessess

The Lisboa Entrepreneurship programme was launched by the Lisboa City Council in February 2013 to support and encourage the creation of new businesses. In view of the current situation and given the need to support companies during economic recovery, CML has created the Lisboa Entrepreneurship+ programme, which offers a wider range of services to companies and provides information on existing support and consulting services, with a view to mitigating the effects of the crisis and promoting economic recovery.

Provision of support to new businesses is included within the scope of measure 4; this support is aimed at entrepreneurs currently wishing to make a difference by starting their businesses in Lisboa.

Develop your idea and submit your project to the Lisboa Entrepreneurship+ team.  We provide personalised technical support, based on an economic and financial view of the business, analyse business plans and offer access to financing through a microcredit line with a limit of €20,000.

Read about all the measures here​. The services provided by Lisboa Entrepreneurship+ are free.
