Portugal Tech Hub, a platform promoted by over 20 public and private entities including IAPMEI, AICEP, Invest Lisboa, Invest Porto and Startup Lisboa, among others was launched at Future.Works.

Future-Works Lisbon 22 is an international event organised by Landing.Jobs and imatch which ran on the 7-8 October at the Lisbon Congress Centre where the future of work was debated with over 3,000 participants and with an online presence from more than 110 countries.
The platform Portugal Tech Hub promoted by IAPMEI, Aicep, Invest Lisboa, Invest Porto, Landing.Jobs, Portugal Digital and Startup Lisboa aims to promote Portugal’s tech ecosystem among overseas tecnology companies and professionals.
Pedro Moura, Chief Marketing Officer of Landing.Jobs says that Portugal Tech Hub has four important goals which aim to be met within five years.
These four aims include: “putting Portugal on the map as a recognised Tech Hub in the top 10 of international tech hubs; attracting over 160,000 technology professionals to Portugal by 2030 – with a strong focus a strong focus on attracting international talent; get triple the current investment from overseas companies in technology centres in Portugal; and increase communication, collaboration and synergies between all the Portuguese entities aligned with these goals”.
Stressing that the “time is now” to grasp the nettle of opportunity, “Portugal is already a growing top destination for technology companies and talent, but the lack of talent in technology (in the local market) is only increasing the problem of limiting the interest of overseas companies. Getting visas takes time and there are territorial imbalances and some lack of conditions to receive companies and talent”.
On the site Portugal Tech Hub information can be consulted about Portugal in terms of the nature of cultural, geographical, demographic, cost of living and national talent aspects.
During the two days event there were 3,000 delegates, 4,000 people interconnected, and 500 meetings organised. Some 45 companies sponsored the event, while there were over 250 job opportunities.
