A Global Network
The combined social reach of Portuguese people home and abroad is huge. By leveraging these connections, we hope to make foreign companies and investors aware of just how much Lisbon has to offer. Friends, family, work colleagues and neighbours are all potential business contacts – and by informing them about the advantages of Lisbon and putting them in contact with our team, they can benefit from a smart investment, and new jobs are created.
Anyone can be a connector, regardless of nationality. What matters is that they have a desire to help promote Lisbon as an attractive place to do business.
Our dedicated professional team is a first contact point and one stop shop for investment, starting a company and entrepreneurial activities. They are well-established and very experienced in facilitating companies moving to Lisbon and supporting foreign direct investment.
Lisbon Business Connections works in conjunction with InvestLisboa, Lisbon’s Investment Promotion Agency. Established in 2009, InvestLisboa has been very effective in supporting over 1,300 investors and companies in Lisbon, as well as launching projects such as Startup Lisboa that have invigorated local innovation and attracted foreign investment. We hope that LBC can complement their efforts to supercharge the Lisbon economy.
Who Can Participate?
Lisbon Business Connections is for anyone in a position to refer a company that may be considering international expansion.
By putting us in touch with these contacts, you can help support Lisbon’s economy. We all know people who have moved overseas for job or business opportunities and by making use of this global network, we can generate business for people at home.
