The top 10 reasons we chose Portugal as Nearshore location are:
- Good stable infrastructure, Governance, IP protection, and EU location.
- It is the new tech Hub in Europe.
- Gartner short listed Portugal as one of the developed market locations for IT Outsourcing
- High number of skilled SW developers available in the market - and they can be headhunted to work for our clients
- Home of the largest tech conference in the world.
- Qualified talent pool. Many strong IT Universities with long tradition and Code Schools, adding 5-6000 IT graduates yearly.
- Good English skills - especially within IT sector. As relatively small and international/open country, Portuguese people are accustomed to speaking English.
- Direct flights from main European cities and in similar Time zone.
- Nice location for stakeholders to visit : in order to have a strong Onshore/Nearshore cooperation, stakeholders need to travel regularly to the Nearshore location, and they should desire to travel there, instead of seeing it as a burden. Only in this way can a strong long term cooperation between HQ and Nearshore be created. Portugal is a very nice place to visit.
