PortugalÂŽs new outlook stands out because of its technological dimension. Having been the host of the worldÂŽs largest tech event, Web Summit, for three consecutive years, the growth of Lisbon has taken the city all the way into the 2017 Startup City Index, placing Lisbon the fourth best city in the world to start a business.
The 2017 Report from the Startup Europe Partnership states that the start-up ecosystem in Portugal is growing at a rate twice as fast as the European average, combined with a highly qualified workforce including many young university degrees in science and technology areas.
Why Portugal? Well-developed IT infrastructure, reasonable costs of facilities combined with high competence and proficient language skills, ease of doing business, a good quality of life and safety index and the geographical location â serving as a bridge from Europe to Africa and the Latin and South Americas. With currently over a hundred established Swedish companies in Portugal and a much higher number of Swedish companies doing business with Portugal - Sweden enjoys a strong reputation, associated with trust and stability.
Welcome to a breakfast seminar organised by The Stockholm Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the Swedish-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce on the 14th of February focusing on this exciting market for Swedish companies.Â
