Técnico has been developing a strategy to promote students’ innovative character and entrepreneurial spirit. The IST SPIN-OFF community was created in November 2009, aiming to disseminate Técnico’s success stories in the business field.

This innovative project aims to stimulate the academic community at Técnico to create their own business, granting them the statute of IST SPIN-OFF®.

Técnico entrepreneurs are increasingly a reference to other universities, creating jobs and showing how technology transfer at Técnico is important for Portugal economic development.
