 inRes Teams: 
inRes, short for “in Residence,” is a very early stage acceleration program for entrepreneurial teams working in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), in Portugal, offered by the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program.  

The program is targeted to entrepreneurial teams that:  

  • want to start a company and commercialize a technology
  • have proven technical feasibility of their product or service
  • have had enough initial interaction with their target markets and industries, to have minimally consistent product or service and business concepts; 
  • and are not yet established companies regularly selling their products or services.  

inRes will provide entrepreneurial teams a training period in Portugal, followed by a six-week structured immersion period in Pittsburgh, in the U.S., anchored at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). The participating teams will benefit from the exposure to a highly dense environment of world-leading research groups, and market and industry specialists, in a variety of high-tech areas.  


inRes will be very intense and challenging, and will require a strong commitment from the teams. It will push them past their comfort zones, and require them to work at a steep pace, cope with high levels of uncertainty, and constantly reach out for contacts to further build and validate their business projects.
