Lisbon ecosystem
Lisbon is home to an emerging startup ecosystem that has steadily been rising in popularity, with media support and growing scene, ensuring its place in international headlines after becoming the first European Capital of Entrepreneurship in 2015 and then securing the largest entrepreneurship event in Europe, Web Summit, since 2016.
Portugal has going for itself a world-class pool of universities and talent (engineers, designers, managers), fluent in languages and with a very low cost of living. While its economy faltered, a Portuguese diaspora reaffirmed itself abroad, being part of successes such as Feedzai, Farfetch, Talkdesk, and OutSystems.
 
“Lisbon’s 2017/2021 Political Governance Programme stands as a strong political commitment towards a better city for people to live. One of its main objectives is making of Lisbon one of the cities in the world with a better quality of life and more sustainable. It is an ambitious programme, which considers the reality as well as the challenges that may arise.” – Fernando Medina, Mayor of Lisbon
