The Cascais Ideas Bank (BIC) is a system created to identify and register innovating projects that may prove interesting to potential investors. This action is aimed at implementing new businesses in Cascais.
The ideas that BIC registers were conceived by entrepreneurs who lack the resources to implement their projects, and will benefit from partnerships with accredited investors, willing to financially help with such projects.
By bringing together those that come up with the ideas and potential investors, BIC thus puts to good use business ideas that otherwise would be forgotten, while respecting the objectives of DNA Cascais.
The agency can act as a mediator, if so desired by the parties involved, with no direct action on the negotiation. BIC is open to business-creating ideas in the Cascais Municipality, especially those focusing on strategic sectors upheld by DNA Cascais – environment, energy, tourism and health – without limiting the amounts invested.
