The Municipality of Porto is very glad to welcome Global Shares to the city. Its decision to establish a new IT hub in Porto is not only a direct result of the skills and talent available here, but it is also an indicator of the strength of our local tech scene. The Porto City Council, through InvestPorto, will continue its commitment to support companies such as Global Shares by providing tailor-made information and assistance at different phases of the investment process.

The Ireland Portugal Business Network is so pleased to have Global Shares as the official partner of our inaugural Porto conference, the first of many in this region. Global Shares has been a loyal and active member of the network since they opened their first office in Lisbon in 2019 and we are very much looking forward to helping them keep growing their business from Portugal.

The decision to invest in an office in the vibrant and innovative fintech city of Porto adds another chapter to Global Shares' remarkable Portugal story and builds on the tremendous success of our Lisbon IT Hub. Since 2012, Portuguese developers have played a key role in building Global Shares' software platform, and today our IT team is mainly split between Portugal and Ireland. This expansion recognises the commitment of all our amazing Portuguese developers and the warm rapport that exists between our cultures. It also kick-starts a recruitment drive to fill 30+ high tech jobs in Porto. We’ve been very impressed by the foresight of the leaders of Porto city, who’ve build a thriving fintech hub, adding to its FDI attractiveness. The city offers a highly educated and skilled workforce, large talent pool of tech graduates, ease of access, favourable cost base and great quality of living. We look forward to see our new Porto operation thrive!
