How we help startups to succeed

There are many ideas. And we believe yours are brilliant! However, it takes more than thinking outside the box or having an outstanding idea to create a successful business, right?



Do you want to be an entrepreneur? If your answer is yes, we may be able to help you with that task.


If this is your first time creating a startup, we know that this can be an intimidating experience, that will require some work and maybe a few blank nights... This is because the startup failure rate is considerable. Only 78.5% of small businesses survive their first year, simply because the market doesn’t need their products or services.


If your company is already established, you need to work as hard to keep it going. We’ve all been there, and we know that it’s useful to have extra help.


Fortunately, BGI has already helped several startups to enter the market successfully. Companies like Feedzai, the latest Portuguese unicorn; Sword Health, recognized as the best Portuguese scaleup in the TOP 25 of the Scaleup Portugal Report; D-Orbit, a leading global market leader in the space transport and logistics services industry, and many others. In total, BGI Accelerator has already helped 149 startups (7 of which are exits) to raise more than 263 M euros.
