F2 Weekly #70 | The chosen one ?
Remember elementary school exams? ? The initial eagerness you had inside you to prove your teacher that you know something? ? The doubts you felt about your answers after your tests? ? How about hearing your classmates discussing their answers afterwards and you entering a panic mode because you didn’t answer anything similar? ?
Oh and the tension of seeing the results afterwards. Did I pass? ? What’s my final score?
Well, here at Founders Founders we felt pretty much the same feelings when we were applying for ScaleUp Porto’s Open Call last month. ? And ever since we were eagerly expecting to see if we had made it or not. ❓
We were thrilled when the results arrived. ? Our project, Incinerator, has made it to the list of 8 project that were chosen to innovate the city of Porto (click HERE to know more)! ?
It’s an awesome feeling being one of the selected among more than 55 applicants, especially with such a special project as the Incinerator which aims to eliminate the stigma of failing. ? Yes, we wish to show that failing is merely a part of the entrepreneurial path, a great opportunity for learning and also an inspiration to face new challenges.?
So, now that we have passed the test, we need to pass the subject and the class as well. We’ll be honest about our ambitions – we want to ace it! ?
