Insights from the Portugal Tourism Innovation Lab

Cristina Salsinha, representing the Portugal Tourism Innovation Lab, shed light on the integral role of innovation in boosting Portugal's economy. Her insights on the tourism sector, contributing 8.7% to the nation’s GDP, are particularly relevant for Do Your Order, given the close ties between tourism and the restaurant industry. Salsinha’s discussion on the Ministry of Tourism's vision for 2027, focusing on sustainability and digitalization, aligns seamlessly with Do Your Order's offerings. This paves the way for the start-up to integrate its services in Portugal's growing tourism sector.

Expanding Networks with Michelle Maree

Networking expert Michelle Maree emphasized the importance of building a strong network. For Do Your Order, this translates into potential collaborations, client acquisitions, and partnerships. Maree’s offer for a personal introduction to her network, including investors, could be a game-changer for Do Your Order, providing them with a much-needed boost in the competitive start-up landscape.

The island of Madeira, with its stunning Mediterranean climate and diverse flora including exotic fruits like bananas, offers more than just a picturesque setting. Its well-organized infrastructure, diverse food culture, and numerous tourist attractions make it an ideal hub for startups. The bustling city of Funchal, with its quality gyms and vibrant lifestyle, adds to the charm of this entrepreneurial retreat.

Looking Towards the Future

As Do Your Order progresses through this program, we're not just gaining invaluable insights and networks but also exploring the potential of expanding our operations.
