Portuguese Live Electric Tours receives Startup Europe Awards

Fully Portuguese, founded by Djalmo Gomes and Luís Lucas, Live Electric Tours is the first company in the world to introduce Live Streaming technology in the Tourism sector. It offers the experience of self drive with 100% electric vehicles that allow to transmit the trip in streaming.

The project, founded in 2017 by Djalmo Gomes and Luís Lucas, offers an innovative solution to tourism in the city of Lisbon through a unique service in the world of 100% electric cars equipped with free Wi-Fi that allows you to share live travel in social networks.

This international recognition adds to the recent injection of 700 thousand euros from Portugal Ventures, which reinforced the plans for fleet growth, team and expansion (currently have 16 vehicles and a team of 10 people). "Portugal Ventures was very important because it allowed us to increase our operating capacity, triple the fleet and continue to invest in new products. It also helped to create this expansion plan, "he clarifies.

About the current strategy, Djalmo Gomes details that it is part of his commitments to reach more cities in Portugal and will already advance to Porto and Évora. A choice that justifies "because they are cities where tourism grows with significant numbers and because there is no offer the same or similar that we offer."

With internationalization becoming particularly relevant in its plans, and assuming that it still needs more investment, it expects to reach foreign markets by 2020.
