Susana Sargento, who is a researcher and the Coordinator of the Network Architectures and Protocols Group from IT in Aveiro and a Professor at the University of Aveiro, is one of the members chosen to join the Independent Investment Committee of Fundo 200M. Susana Sargento will now assume the mission to participate in the analysis panel of the co-investment proposals for this Fund.
Fundo 200m is managed by PME Investimentos and can invest between 500 thousand euros and a maximum of five million euros in innovative startups in cooperation with private funds.
“The Fund 200M is a very interesting instrument to attract investors of the technological sector to Portugal, bringing not only more capital to Portuguese startups but also investors who can design and grow our companies in the global market. This fund aims to leverage larger investments in the acceleration phase of technology companies, which until now had to look abroad when they needed investments of larger amounts.", said the Portuguese Minister of Economy
