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. 

The winners of the 2020 edition are:

"It was the opportunity we've been longing for to work with PRIO. It helped us validate our technology and business model. PRIO proved to be committed to being at the forefront of digitalization of their processes and of the adoption of new technologies, which allowed for a fast pilot development."



"The main takeaway for us is that working with a partner which has innovation as its core value is truly differentiating when it comes to drafting a pilot that makes a difference not only for our business but also for the business of our partner."    



"Our talks with the PRIO helped us understand where we are and what are the necessary next steps to further progress our technology and make full use of the opportunities that working with PRIO could provide us."
