"We’ve been active in Web3 for many years now, and have helped over 100 projects launch with our team of mentors and advisors and did all of this digitally. For us, opening a physical space is investing in bringing Web3 builders together to accelerate innovation. Therefore it’s with great honor and pride that we finally open, after a year of planning and construction, our first Hub in Lisbon. We envision Poolside becoming the home for entrepreneurs and artists to share ideas and celebrate the future of the Internet."
