A Photo Review of Startup Events in Portugal During 2014

As we near the end of 2014, here’s a quick look at some of the startup/tech events I attended in the course of the year, further validating that the startup momentum in Portugal is growing. Have a wonderful holiday season and to all a great and productive 2015.
