The Lisbon Golf Academy hosted the latest GSI - Global Strategic Innovation event for its Alumni community that focused on the presentation of the 2019 program. On the verge to its ninth edition, and with more than 400 entrepreneurial participants, it was discussed how GSI and its programs promoted innovation in organizations.

Carlos Oliveira, Managing Partner of LBC, presented the GSI 2019 program, which will focus on themes such as Smart Cities, Mobility, Agrotech and Fintech.

Responsible for the design of the GSI program since its foundation, Carlos Oliveira also discussed how corporate venture has become a reality in Portugal and how startups acceleration is a necessity for companies nowadays.

The event was attended by Miguel Fontes, Director of Startup Lisboa, who presented the developments of Hub Criativo do Beato, an initiative that has the support of LBC as an Advisory Partner. Miguel Fontes also discussed future growth plans and how the GSI Alumni could benefit from Hub Criativo do Beato.

Lastly, the event included the Assistant Secretary of State and Mobility, Prof. José Mendes, who participated in the GSI in 2012. He spoke about his experience as a GSI participant and how the program influenced his work in creating an innovative ecosystem as vice dean of the University of Minho. Prof. José Mendes also spoke about the advances in electric mobility, especially in terms of regulation, and also about the importance of energy solutions for long-distance and heavy mobility.
