I want to invite all Startup Digest readers to check out the incoming Application Deadlines because they are very interesting: acceleration batches, international calls and plenty of events touching different topics.
So do not just stop to check this week’s events out, but also start to plan your future steps.

👉 Until June 18, time to vote on the best female professional per category @Portuguese Women in Tech Awards.
👉 The 3rd edition of the João Vasconcelos Award – Entrepreneur of the Year is out
João Vasconcelos Award which aims to recognize and reward annually, the one that stands out for its contributions to the startups community and for the national ecosystem, is awaiting your input.
Please submit your event as early as possible so that we can communicate timely about it and get the success that it deserves.
Keep strong, wash your hands & use a mask, take care of each other, and go do great stuff!
