Carlos Palhares, CEO and Co-Founder of MUB Cargo, points out the advantages of the partnership with Castel Capital, “this is not only an investor but also a strong partner with extensive experience that will be able to develop the company in its newest phase. This investment lends credibility to our team and the project that we are working on passionately,” he said in a press release.

MUB Cargo will also be expanding to a new geographical market – Spain. After establishing themselves firmly as an intermediary marketplace of freight in Portugal, where they excelled at matching the transportation needs of their customers at competitive prices with their ability to identify availability on the part of carriers, they are now looking to expand throughout the Iberian Peninsula.

MUB Cargo was initially incubated at Startup Braga – it is now in a phase of tremendous growth and geographical expansion.

While at the same time consolidating their success in Portugal, they will also drive investment to expand their geographic reach into Spain by opening a new office in Madrid in the second half of 2018. This will allow MUB Cargo to connect with Spanish carriers for transportation of cargo.

Earlier this week, MUB Cargo launched a new version of its platform, with improvements in usability and user experience. The new version allows the user to obtain new quotes in a more efficient manner.

According to the website, the process of shipping through MUB Cargo involves three steps. First, the user indicates what they want to carry, whether it is a small box, pallet, or larger cargo. Then, the user chooses the carrier by selecting from a quote – or the user can start an auction from among the over 400 carriers. The final step is choosing a payment method and paying directly thorugh MUB Cargo.

Le deal Amazon & Monoprix !


Amazon et Monoprix : le fail ou l’idée du siècle ? Tout le monde parle du deal entre Amazon et Monoprix qui a décidé de distribuer ses produits sur la plateforme du leader de l’e-commerce. Voilà mon avis. Déjà, vous le savez j’en ai marre qu’on parle du e commerce car en réalité, il n’y a qu’une seule chose : le commerce. Le vrai problème du e-commerce c’est pas de faire un site, c’est de mettre en place la logistique. Monoprix s’est associé au meilleur logisticien du monde pour livrer en 2h. Ils ont externalisé le truc le plus compliqué et qui marge peu et gardent leurs forces pour la grosse bataille. On verra si Monoprix a fait le bon choix, c’est l’avenir qui le dira.

EU Commission needs 9 more Portuguese startups to include in research project

EU Commission needs 9 more Portuguese startups to include in research project


The EU Commission is looking for at least nine more Portuguese startups to complete its EU Startup Monitor research project. Here’s how to submit your startup.

The EU Startup Monitor for benchmarking startup ecosystems does not have sufficient data to include Portugal in its report, and there are only two weeks remaining for Portuguese startups to submit.

In order for Portugal to be included in the benchmark, at least nine more startups need to be submitted. Currently, there are 21 projects submitted, but the EU Commission needs at least 30 Portuguese startups.

Portuguese startup founders can submit their projects through this link.

“The European Commission’s Startup and Scaleup Initiative aims to give Europe’s innovative entrepreneurs every opportunity to become leading companies,” writes Kristin Schreiber, Director for SME Policy and the COSME Programme in an open endorsement letter to startup founders.

Filling the survey will take 10-12 minutes. All answers are being treated anonymously and the lottery with great prizes at the end is not connected to the survey. The final report will be openly available.

“Your participation [in the survey] will allow us to take your views and your situation into account when continuing to formulate policy initiatives for startups and scaleups in Europe. Make your voice heard!” Schreiber continued.

EU Startup Monitor researcher Lisa Steigertahl tells Portugal Startups, “The European Commission wants to hear your voice! We are looking for inputs to create more effective and meaningful policies that support young enterprises, who have recently started a business or are in the process of scaling up.”

“If you are a founder or manager of a European startup, please take a few minutes to contribute to the survey. At the end all participants have the chance to win great prizes, e.g. an exhibition stand at TOA Berlin, or tickets to Pioneer’s 18, Bits and Pretzels and a personal invitation including travel and accommodation to the VIP SME Assembly,” she added.

On 22 November 22, 2016 the European Commission adopted an initiative to improve the economic and regulatory situation for startups and scaleups.

With this research study it is practicing bottom-up evidence based policy making and is inviting all European founders and managers of startups to make their voice heard and to actively contribute and shape the European Startup Ecosystem.

The goal of the EU Startup Monitor is the collection and analysis of inputs to be able to act based on this monitoring of the startup environment, and the discovered country specific and common challenges of the startup and scaleup landscape.

Schreiber continues, “To accompany the policy work, the European Commission has given Prof. Dr. Mauer, Mrs. Steigertahl and their research team the task to collect information concerning startups and their growth prospects and analyse this information.”

The EU Startup Monitor is being executed by a team of researchers consisting of Prof. Dr. René Mauer and Steigertahl. Both are associated with the ESCP Europe, the world’s oldest business school and French Grand École.

Prof. Mauer holds the Chair for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at ESCP Europe, Berlin Campus, and his areas of expertise include entrepreneurship, startups and growth management.

Mrs. Steigertahl has a track record for academic studies in the field of entrepreneurship and as the former CEO of the European Startup Network an extraordinary reach into national startup ecosystems across Europe.

Your vote can earn Portuguese startup Code For All $200K via Chivas Venture

Your vote can earn Portuguese startup Code For All $200K via Chivas Venture


Anyone can now vote for Portuguese startup Code For All to be selected for the biggest share of $200,000 through the Chivas Venture.

The first $200,000 of the Chivas Venture fund is in the hands of the general public. There are 27 startups competing, but only one from Portugal, Code For All, aka Academia de Código.

The 27 social entrepreneurs will pitch for a share of $1 million in funding at the Chivas Venture Global Final in May. The first share of $200,000 is up to the public.

You may vote for any of the 27 social entrepreneurs and their startups here, and for Portugal’s Code For All here.

Through programming bootcamps, Code For All, represented by Diana Nunes, aims to train unemployed citizens with technical skills in order to secure placement in the job market more effectively, especially in young age groups.

“Funding would allow us to reach more people, more quickly. We’ve already started pilots in Poland, Italy, Greece and Macau and we’re now preparing for our next big step: international success,” explained Nunes.

“Our bootcamps have a 96% rate of employability and we’ve found that our younger students have improved their maths and logic abilities as a result of attending the junior lessons. We are also planning to run bootcamps in prisons and funding will allow us access to such institutions.”

This year, the Chivas Venture has raised the bar for international finalists, who will compete head-to-head with an international audience of technology experts, investors and entrepreneurs on the stage of the TNW Conference in Amsterdam.

Once in the Dutch capital, the 27 countries will be reduced to five finalists and will represent their countries at the International Chivas Venture Final on 24 May.

The finalists will only have five minutes to impress the panel of judges with their innovative ideas.

Last month the Portuguese startup acquired Codeplace’s online coding school, which is currently present in 140 countries with a portfolio of more than 70,000 students.

Codeplace Co-Founder Tiago Martins said that these last years of work had been “an incredible journey” and that the company “decided to sell to Academia de Código because they share the same vision of employability, and because they seemed to us the ideal company to scale Codeplace, allowing us to create new projects that have more and more impact.”

With the acquisition of Codeplace, the Code For All plans to scale its operation and enter the North American market.

Code For All was born in 2015. At that time, the unemployment rate in Portugal was high, especially youth unemployment.

Founders João MagalhãesDomingos Guimarães, and Rui Ferrão thought it was time to do something to combat this situation.

“We started thinking about a project where we could invite a person to have training in the programming area and then help them get into the job market,” Magalhães told Negócios in 2016.

“The aim was to get people out of unemployment and get them to work as programmers. We knew that there was a huge lack of business [on the part of the companies], but on the side of people, we didn’t know, and when we launched the first course we had 600 candidates. We realized that there was, on the people side, the talent and the will to change – and have a career in a different area,” Magalhães added.

Starting from today and ending April 25, Portugal will be able to support Code For All by voting for the Portuguese startup via the Chivas Venture portal.

“Code for All is teaching unemployed talent how to code, providing them with the skills they need to start a career in the technology sector. In our 14-week intensive bootcamps, we transform bright minds into passionate junior software developers, supporting them until they find a job they love,” added Nunes.
