Our Purpose

We believe in a World where Portugal becomes the best and natural choice for Technology leaders.

We are committed to creating an inclusive and diverse community of leaders that strive to impact the Portugal Tech scene in a big way. We like to think of these leaders as Doers, Shapers and Makers depending on where they are in their growth journey. Our mission is to fuel this journey and provide a resilient platform for our members to engage with each other positively.

We work hard to radically transform Portugal from being just a "surf" and "pastel de nata" destination to become the place to be in the World for all things Technology.

Our Community Values

We believe we should let our guards down in all the things we do within the community and for the community. Enabling a safe space for learning can only be achieved through true openness.

We believe that by being flexible with one another we unlock the true value of our group and provide a fertile ground for growth.

We believe that becoming better professionals means we promote deep and rich learning which comes for sharing experiences and being inquisitive.

We believe that Portugal is the place to be for companies looking for a home so we're committed to making a success of it.

What Our Members Say

Glyn Roberts

CTO of Digital Solutions at iTechArt Group

What I have found most useful is being able to ask specific questions about real situations and getting actionable feedback and also recommendations on tools and reading that would be useful in future situations.

João Alves

Engineering Manager @ FREE NOW

As an expat, being able to connect and stay up-to-date with the Portuguese community of technical leaders is great! We can ask questions and share knowledge. Everyone is always keen to help and that's what makes the difference in this group.

Gonçalo Silva

CTO at Doist

Most people playing their "A" game have a great support network. CTOs Portugal fulfils this role spectacularly for folks in PT. Joining a vibrant community like this means not having to test your ideas in production again.
