We've been fielding a ton of enquiries, interview requests, life rental opportunities and even a couple of job applications as a result of the tech coverage we've been getting but probably the most significant contact came late last week from a startup incubator program based in Lisbon, Portugal.
Fabrica De Startups is part of the F6s network and state their mission is "to help people to become successful entrepreneurs. Using our methodology we help them identifying business ideas, creating teams, designing their business model, finding customers and in the launching of the company." Their current program is called Discovery and it is focussed on startups in the Travel & Tourism sector, which fits neatly with what we're trying to do at ShelfLife - to go beyond 'experiential tourism' and move fully into 'immersive travel'.
So we we're thrilled to get an invitation to apply to this year's Discovery program, which looks well-run and very well supported. Although we're currently based in Vertica labs in Singapore, we're a small, nimble team and ready to take advantage of any opportunity that may present itself. Plus, Lisbon sounds super cool!
So wish us luck - our application has been submitted and we're keeping our fingers crossed. Stay tuned!
