The eTeams program originated as the U.S.-portion of the €1 million Building Global Innovators (BGI) venture competition organized by the Institute of Lisbon, MIT Portugal, and Caixa Capital. The competition is supported by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT) of the Portuguese Ministry for Education and Science.
Contributed article from Jos Scheffelaar, chief executive and co-founder of the Launch in US Alliance and EuroUS Accelerator. He is also an MIT eTeams organizing committee member. In earlier editions of this blog you have been reading about a group of European companies participating in the unique MIT eTeams international acceleration program that was held in Cambridge from May 2-16.

Exploring New Frontiers by Translating Ideas into Commercial
Impact
"Since its inception, the MIT Portugal Program has sought to bring together academics from across Portugal to create a new model of graduate education and research that would build on the collective capability of Portuguese science and technology. Like the vision of Prince Henry in the 15th century age of discovery, the MPP has used its convening power to create a nation wide ecosystem to stimulate scientific discovery focused on solutions to important
problems. I will reflect here on the success of translating ideas to impact within the MPP, within MIT and in the success of Vasco da Gama to capture lesson learned."
