Welcome to NewCo Leiria - November 22nd

The original industrial city, producing many of Portugal’s basic industrial products and services: glass, molds, construction, and many more. But along the river Lis there have been major developments in the past years. Leiria has developed a bustling startup scene, as well as attracting  foreign companies to the city. The two are an amazing combination that is worth exploring. At the NewCo festival Leiria you can do just that!

  • 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.”
