Together,

we fuel progress

Jump Start is a program focused on accelerating innovative solutions to help shaping the future of PRIO.
 

PRIO was born in 2006 as a startup and it’s still that startup feeling that makes PRIO permanently innovative and daring.

Fourteen years later, PRIO is standing stronger than ever: we're a key player in the energy for the mobility sector and one of Portugal's top companies. But we want to go the extra mile. We want new, bold ideas that can help us push forward. We want your help to be better and build a better society and a more efficient and sustainable world. We want to jump-start your business.

Jump Start exists so that, together, we fuel progress.
