Testimonials from last years’ Jump Starters


PRIO can use our technology to position themselves in the market as an innovative company, and they can help us going forward and get to market with more applications than the ones we were initially considering

Francisco Duarte, Pavnext


(Jump Start) allowed us to showcase our project to PRIO, which is a very important player in the energy sector, not only regarding fuels but also electric mobility.

João Mascarenhas, Tramgrid

With PRIO we can directly develop the product and not speak about anything else, so that’s an advantage

Kishhanth Renganathan, Macco Robotics

PRIO has its problems very well identified and they know what they are looking for. They pick a bunch of startups and, then, there’s this moment between the startups and PRIO where both try to understand whether there’s fit or not.

Gonçalo Consiglieri, Visor.ai

You get a lot of insights on how the industry works but also on how the company works and you get a quick feeling if they are interested in your product or not.

Manuel Heckmann, Eco G

The next testimonial could be yours. Leave your mark and make a difference at Jump Start.
