Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Portugese counterpart Antonio Costa on Saturday launched the India-Portugal International StartUp Hub (IPISH) here to help in mutual capacity building, and enable connections between start-ups, investors, and incubators from relevant sectors.

According to an External Affairs Ministry statement, this is a platform initiated by Startup India and supported by Commerce and Industry Ministry and Startup Portugal to create a mutually supportive entrepreneurial partnership.

"IPISH is expected to help in mutual capacity building, and enable connections between start-ups, investors, and incubators from relevant sectors. It is also expected to establish a network of honorary ambassadors based in India and Portugal to guide start-ups from both countries," it said.

The ministry also said that IPISH hosts a range of tools and will provide information on the start-up hotspots of Bengaluru, Delhi and Lisbon; and on associated subjects, such as policy, taxation, and visa options. It will develop a Go-To-Market Guide to support start-ups.
