A Study Of Portugal's Business Champions

Portugal is usually regarded as a traditional, relatively backward country, mostly remembered for its 15th and 16th centuries’ outstanding achievements and thought to be sunk in the blurred memories of the past. We are best known to offer/display top-quality pastry or wines (custard tarts Pastéis de Nata and the sweet, world renowned Port Wine stand out among a wide range of Mediterranean-flavoured food and sophisticated beverages); unique diversity for tourism including some of the most beautiful, sun-kissed beaches in Europe; a mournful music genre, Fado, which has lately been brought back under the spotlight by Mozambique-born singer Mariza; some of the most successful performers in the football industry, nowadays with arguably the world’s best coach and footballer, Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo respectively.

However, what few people know is what is to be found beyond all this, what truly shows our deep transformation into a state-of-the-art technological niche, with innovation and unlimited creativity as the cornerstone of success in countless products and services. This is, as a matter of fact, what I wish to tell you about.

It has built a reputation for delivering creative entertainment with pioneering and award-winning new features in the mobile gaming industry: interaction between mobile phones and giant public screens, players’ real location and image recognition. The company also provides technological solutions for global customers such as Adidas, Vodafone or Nokia.
