Why Portugal?

For the past eight years, the country has been emerging as one of the most promising startup ecosystems in Europe, embracing a new age of technological growth. Portugal is also perceived as a stable place to do business, which is attracting foreign investment—especially technological investment. These factors combined are demanding Portuguese companies to empower their leaders with an agile and disruptive mindset to succeed in a world of constant technological change. As Peter Diamandis says: “The rate of technological change is accelerating so fast that our ability to understand the implications of it has never been so challenging and so important.” This reality has never been truer in Portugal, and SingularityU Portugal was created precisely to help prepare Portuguese leaders for this challenging, disruptive, yet exciting future. Portugal now has the chance to contribute to the rise of a new mindset.
