33 Portuguese Startups show up at the biggest European Entrepreneurship Event

Facestore is a repeating. Last year it was invited by the organization to expose in the event. This year they wanted to repeat the experience and came back to Dublin with an extra, a seat among the 200 chosen companies to make a pitch to investors in one of the 3 stages set for the effect.

Paulo Barbosa, the CEO, goes to Dublin full of optimism since in 2014 the Facebook stores creation platform aroused a lot of interest among the audience and won some partnerships due to the presence on the event.

On this second appearance on Web Summit, the Facestore launched the platform to the United Kingdom, the biggest and most dynamic of European markets in electronic trade. With just a version for Portugal, the service is already used by some foreign companies, but the startup moves on now with a located version for the British market and concludes the first big bet on the product internationalization.

Is a market where the competition is strong but Paulo Barbosa believes that Facestore’s characteristics will call attention. There many solutions that allow to easily create online stores, but are less the ones that help the companies making this step in perfect tune with social networks.

Facestore is focused on Facebook integration but has been exploring other environments, like Instagram and Pinterest. Soon it will launch a solution that will allow shopping directly from this last one, just with a click on the button related to a certain image.

The Facestore’s appearance on Web Summit serves to show news but the company is also looking for investors who can bring power to the project’s international expansion, which was born to help any consumer interested in creating a Facebook store but redirected the offer to the business market. On the way helped to create 15 thousand stores on Facebook. To the end wants to reach 18 thousand.”
