Hi {firstname}

 

Cíntia here 😄 As the end of the year approaches, we can't help but look back on what has been the most incredible year for 351 Portuguese Startup Association yet!

 

The numbers are in: 

➡️ +1600 members on our Slack community

➡️ 76 volunteers in all our initiatives

➡️ 88 initiatives and events throughout the year

➡️ +23.100 people directly impacted by our projects

 

It has been a year full of challenges and growth, and we are already planning what we want to do and achieve next year! 🚀

 

We want to publicly thank all our volunteers and members of 351's community that somehow have contributed to making 2023 a memorable year for all of us. We hope you are just as excited for 2024 as we are!
