GYC AMBASSADOR: João Vasconcelos Interview

February 2014 | interview ambassador startups

Why did you accept to be a GYC Ambassador? GYC is the largest and most important conference on entrepreneurship, in Portugal, I'm very proud and honored to be an ambassador to support this excellent initiative. What did you take away from GO Youth Conference ’13? Absorbed fundamental teachings, the GYC values the testimony of founders, who made over of those who studied or watched. The words of a founder are wiser and these teachings are most crucial to other founders. The GYC is a huge mentoring session. How do you see GO Youth Conference growing over the coming years? Simply keep the quality of the speakers and the same organizational capacity then last year, for the coming years to be ones of expansion and growth. What do you believe sets GO Youth Conference apart from other conference on entrepreneurship and startups? The valorization of the “voice” of the founders, most speakers from GO Youth Conference speak in the first person. What makes Lisbon an ideal place to host an event of this kind? The location, the history, price, for the people and for the vitality of the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Which are, in your opinion, the best examples of young entrepreneurship (Portuguese/global)? A global example i would say, Uber. If we are talking Portuguese, Farfetch. Can Entrepreneurship Fix the Epidemic of Youth Unemployment? No. But it can definitely help. What are your projects/plans at the moment? Running Startup Lisboa, opening our third building and keep attracting the best startups and mentors.
