About this event

Are you ready for another season? We hope you had the chance and time to take some time off and fully charge your batteries. If you didn't, we have the perfect excuse to take a break from work and join our community for another Startup Grind Lisbon event!

After discussing the unannounced fundraising winter, and a pitstop to check on your mental health and the need for adequate breaks, we're now debating what options lie ahead. Everybody is pretty much briefed now on unicorns and other magical creatures such as centaurs and dragons but have you ever heard about camels?

The term was first coined by Alex Lazarov from Cathay Innovation in 2017 and applies to startups such as Zoom and Grubhub, which started their journeys focusing on sustainable growth, and only looking for equity investment when strictly necessary. To put it more bluntly, it refers to startups that have the resources to cross the desert and not requiring a constant stream of investment.

Join us for a round table with two founders running two very different companies that took different paths to sustain and grow their companies.

Let's meet Philip Källberg, founder and CEO of Shake, and Natalie Marina, co-founder and CEO of Noty.

Don't miss this opportunity to become a better founder, learn about growth and startup scaling in the first person from these two extraordinary founders, and meet or reunite with our fantastic community!

See you Thursday!



Shake's mission is to help businesses grow with online reviews. While we love growth, we don't strive for growth at all costs and are building a company we can be proud of and enjoy working for.

Noty is on a mission of building your personal AI virtual assistant, so you can focus on what's really important.
