SWG Getaway 2020


The most awaited event of the year in the SWG family!

This is not the typical startup conference, it’s not meant to be that and it will never be.

For the 4th year in a row, we are bringing together startup founders from all SWG accelerator batches to learn and connect with each other, to get recharged and inspired.

This year we are meeting in Caparica – Lisbon, Portugal. Block it in your calendar right away, it will be legendary – 1st to 3rd of October 2020!
