Welcome to NewCo Faro - November 15th

The original southern Algarve city is bustling with activity and is main city in the tourist-loved Algarve. From the Cidade Velha to the Marina, the city is now developing a dynamic startup scene, which expands beyond the tourist business that was already flourishing in Faro. Numerous co-working spaces and incubators are attracted by this vibe. Come and check it out during NewCo Festival.

  • The Dots: A portfolio platform for the creative industries

    The Dots — a professional network for creatives

    NewCo talks with Pip Jamieson, founder of The Dots. The UK-based online network helps companies find talent, and gives creatives a place to post portfolios and find job opportunities from companies like MTV, Spotify, and others. “I really believe that creativity is a force for good,” Jamieson says. “Soon machines are going to drive, code, do our laundry … The last things humans are going to be good for is creativity. So, we help harness that community.”
