Event Details


The Future Internet is here, in Lisbon. Want to be one of the first to use it?


Have you heard about FIWARE? 

If not, no worries - most people still don't know about it. FIWARE (the Future of Internet Ware) is a brand new platform that will basically completely change how we interact with the web. FIWARE is open, public and royalty-free. Its development was (and still is) supported by the European Commission (EC), and now the EC wants to speed-up its adoption rate. 


That means there's a lot of money being invested into FIWARE. Which, in turn, means:

  • Grants for FIWARE startups;
  • Investment opportunities;
  • A huge and untapped market, since it's a revolutionary and completely new technology.


Because it's backed by the European Commission, we're expecting that the FIWARE implementation on our everyday stuff will be fairly quick. So now it's that right moment to learn everything there is to learn about FIWARE and launch businesses in this area: you can be the trend-setter, and have the first mover advantage that will allow you to reap all the benefits for being in the right spot with the right set of tools.

At the FIWARE Bootcamp + Startup Weekend, you will:

  • Learn how to program on the FIWARE platform
  • Find out untapped FIWARE biz opps (there's lots of them)
  • Launch a FIWARE startup in just 54h

We will give you the tools to shape your business idea, design it, validate it, prototype it and to pitch it like a pro. All this in just a few days. 

Get ahead of the curve and learn about this disruptive technology. Plus, it will be Startup Weekend-style! What's not to love?

Other stuff to know:

1) On the last Startup Weekend Lisbon, the startup Popcorn Metrics was created. They went on to join Lisbon Challenge, were one of the finalists (thus received $$$), and got invested by Seedcamp.This could be you.

2)  After Startup Weekend, you can apply for the Open Calls of SOUL-FI or one of the other 15 FIWARE accelerators that offer 80,000,000€, mentorship and networking for web-entrepreneurs and SMEs. 


Learn about FIWARE before everyone else and build the NEXT BIG THING.

There’s limited seating and it’s first-come, first-served. Just grab your ticket above.



  • Project's Promotional Video sponsored by IPN
  • Arduino kits sponsored by IPN
  • Further Mentoring given by Beta-i and IPN Professionals
  • The opportunity to play the Global Startup Battle and be awarded with a roadtrip in the USA and many other perks.

More info on FIWARE:

The FIWARE platform allows you to test with real data, run trials with real users, get visibility and promotion, host permanent showcases, connect with potential customers and accelerate product development. It is based upon a series of elements (called Generic Enablers) that offer resable and commonly share functions serving multiple areas of use across various sectors.

Smart Cities, eHealth, Transport, Energy, Environment, Education, Manufacturing and Logistics are some of the example where FIWARE technology can be applied.


Come to the Bootcamp and to the Startup Weekend (Nov 13 - 16) to really dig FIWARE, take the most of the program and get the best results. You will learn everything you need to know about FIWARE, put it in practice and meet real business people and designers who will get your technical skills on the map.


If you're looking to get a startup up & going or work in the next Skype, you can't miss Startup Weekend (Nov 14 - 16). During these challenging 54 hours, we will provide you with all the resources and the technical experts that you need to run a business in the FIWARE platform.

Looking forward to be with you in these insane and amazing technlogical days.
