Agência para o Investimento e Comércio Externo de Portugal


Portugal is now becoming an increasingly popular destination for startups and innovators as it offers an attractive business and relocation environment.

For Russian companies wishing to enter international markets, Portugal can become a platform for entering the EU market. Moreover, Portuguese startups may enter the Skolkovo Softlanding Program to succeed on the Russian market.


Skolkovo Foundation representatives attended the fourth Russian-Portuguese Innovation Forum and WEB Summit, the largest tech event in the world, held in Lisbon. Head of international startup relations at the Skolkovo Foundation Daria Shunina gave a presentation on the Skolkovo Softlanding Program to Portuguese. She also discussed new opportunities and challenges in Russian-Portuguese collaboration with the country's leading development institutions.


The Skolkovo Softlanding Program, which takes place multiple times a year, is becoming more and more attractive for foreign companies.  Taking into account travel restrictions, the opportunity to communicate with experts from various fields and areas, and present your project to investors and mentors is appreciated. By participating, startups learn the ins and outs of the Russian market and the Skolkovo Innovation Center through the program’s seminars, lectures, and in-depth training. 


In the future, the Skolkovo Foundation plans to organize several events, such as webinars and individual acceleration programs for Portuguese companies.
