As alternates, jurors appointed BookBySlot (India), eccocar (Spain), OptiShower (Portugal), Totte (Spain), and Venture with Impact (USA).
In order to boost the acceleration of the startups participants, the program was designed for 8 weeks. Throughout the agenda, participants will be able to count on 8 workshops and lectures, a sprint and a demo-day. Bernardo Véstia (eDreams ODIGEO), Gil Belford (Fever & Lisboa Secreta), Pedro Monteiro de Barros (Codacy), Rui Gouveia (comOn) and Stephan Morais (Indico Capital Partners) are among the more than 15 mentors invited by NOVA SBE.

The stage of the event will be at the Jesuit College, located in the heart of Funchal.
According to Luís Araújo, the president of Turismo de Portugal, “the sustainability of tourism depends to a large extent on the systematic reinvention of experiences in destinations and improvement of support systems. For this to happen it is essential to remain committed to supporting tourism innovation. This is why Turismo de Portugal supports Madeira Startup Retreat, an international program that combines a mature tourism ecosystem with new technologies and allows selected startups to live in Madeira a unique experience in a living laboratory. These are initiatives that position Portugal, increasingly, as a world reference in innovation associated with tourism. ”
“For the second consecutive year, we have been able to attract international startups in this program that will take place on the island of Madeira. This is the confirmation that innovation programs in the tourism sector are also crucial for the development and promotion of Portugal as a technological destination. Madeira is prepared to welcome these startups, functioning as the ideal laboratory for tests in the areas of tourism and leisure. Reconcile sea, nature, hotel sector, airport, specialized human resources and tourists allows the selected startues to enjoy this scenario “, says Carlos Soares Lopes, president of Startup Madeira. The total will receive more than 30 entrepreneurs, from February 4 to March 29, 2019. “In this second edition, about 90% of the entrepreneurs are international. We will count on Americans, Lithuanians, Belorussians, Finns, Brazilians, Poles, Indians, French, Italians and Austrians “counts Carlos Soares Lopes.
One of the objectives of the program is for the participants to take advantage of these weeks to explore the island and enjoy leisure and recreational moments. For a better adaptation to the island, in January will also be called 5 local Madeira hosts who will accompany the work activity of the startups, making daily the connection between the team and the regional culture.
Establishing an entrepreneurial connection with Madeira is also one of the challenges of this program. Madeira Startup Retreat can be accompanied on the official website www.retreat.startupmadeira.eu and on official social networks.
