The 8th of October, during the Future.Works event, marked the official inauguration of the Portugal Tech Hub initiative, which was attended by the various partners on stage to sign the collaboration protocol and for a presentation session of this initiative. The collaboration protocol promotes Portugal to attract foreign companies and technological talent.
The Portugal Tech Hub project arises on the initiative of the Portuguese company Landing.Jobs, with the aim of creating a collaborative partnership between several national entities to increase Portugal’s international reputation as a Technological Hub, to increase the number of foreign companies investing in the creation of teams and technological development centres in our country, and to promote the immigration flows to Portugal of IT professionals from other countries, to mitigate the current shortage of this professional class.
The aim of this project is to create a brand that is a flag of Portugal in its positioning in the international technological scenario to encourage the creation of greater alignment and synergies between the various participants.
Portugal Tech Hub has 7 founding partners Landing.Jobs, aicep Portugal Global, Startup Portugal, Invest Lisboa, Invest Porto, Portugal Digital and IAPMEI, as well as more than 20 partners, such as UPTEC, Fundão City Council, Startup Lisboa, Startup Madeira, Startup Leiria, LISPOLIS, The Fintech House, BETA-i, NomadX, TERINOV, TecParques, NOW_Beato, Associação Nonagon, IDEA Spaces, SRS Advogados, Work-in, Morais Leitão, RoyalTax, InvestBraga, Savills, IPN Incubator, Algarve Tech Hub, WorkHub Lisboa and PRA Raposo, Sá Miranda e Associados. There are already many other entities interested in joining this initiative, which will happen shortly.
The Portugal Tech Hub is available through its website — www.portugaltechhub.pt — where useful information can be consulted on the characterization of Portugal in terms of demography, geography, culture, cost of living, national talent, as well as on the constitution of a company, business support and incentives, recruitment, taxes, Visas, among others.
Visitors will also have direct access to the initiative’s partners. The ebook with the same name as the initiative is a detailed guide with all this information and can be downloaded free of charge from the website. Soon, a series of initiatives to promote and attract Portugal to companies and foreign talent will begin, carried out by the partners of this initiative.
