Innovation X Creativity – the attractiveness of Portugal


Frank Zappa, master in innovation, creativity and freedom of speech in the previous century said: “The mind is like a parachute, only works if opened”.

We are now, some years later, in a century where only organizations that can live by that moto can last, at least, during the first half of this century.

Portugal is a medium size country in the extreme part of Europe that was forced to think different to survive and prosper - first to become independent from Spain with all the fights for self-governance between the XII and XVII centuries; and after, in the XV century, to take the risk of crossing the seas into the unknown looking for different worlds in South America, Africa and Asia in order to overcome the poverty and isolation constraints.

In the XXI century Portugal’s priority is to become a business attractive country using our natural resources: nice weather, good food, undamaged nature, excellent infrastructures, friendly people and brainpower.

The core essence of incubating new businesses using that brainpower is using creativity to innovate and get some competitive advantage recognized by customers and markets.

This innovation climate already attracted Web Summit which will take place for the first time in Lisbon in November, and has been nurturing the right mood for new businesses.

That is the reason why Portugal appears in the frontline of attractiveness for companies that want to increase the operations they already have in Portugal…
