Whilst the tourist industry is one of the most lucrative business opportunities in the country, it is not the only route for investors looking to establish trade.
A 2018 report by Scale-Up Portugal revealed the top five start-up industries by share of total investment, and tech companies overwhelming emerged on top.
IoT, enterprise software and fintech (financial tech) all ranked, whilst health and marketing were revealed to be major players in the Portuguese start-up industry. However, these industries are by no means saturated, and Lisbon is ranked amongst the best locations in the world for fresh start-ups to find their way.
Whether you’re carving out a new direction for the next digital innovation, or seeking to capitalise on tourist trade, Portugal is the perfect place to make your mark, and Lisbon at the helm.
