A modern Porto, highly innovative, contemporary and evermore proud of its strong tradition. This is how InvestPorto, the investment attraction office created by Rui Moreira, wants to show the city of Porto. A competitive and excellent city to invest, live and work. 

The local authority produced a video that shows what is best done in the city in terms of added value.

InvestPorto, launched in 2015, is the municipal entity responsible for attracting investment into the city, providing investors with a wide range of specialized services before, during and after the initial investment process.

In its first year of activity, the office has worked in 154 investment proposals from all over the world, and is currently monitoring a large portfolio of projects, including 40 large operations representing more than 7,000 qualified jobs - in sectors such as Information technology, engineering, shared services, finance, agro-industrial, real estate, tourism, environment and biotechnology.

In addition to a number of other initiatives aimed at making the city increasingly competitive and welcoming for investment with high added value.

The latest announced investments were the Euronext global competency centre, the expansion of Blip (PaddyPower Betfair), Critical Software and Amyris' center of excellence in biotechnology.
