ATLANTIC BUSINESS HUB LISBON: START UP CITY KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION STRATEGIC CLUSTERS ATLANTIC BUSINESS HUB Lisbon is a privileged platform to 500 million European consumers, offering modern transportation and logistics infrastructures, such as state of the art ports, railroads and highways, giving good investment opportunities. Lisbon also has a deep economic and cultural relation with Portuguese speaking emergent economies like Angola, Brazil and Mozambique, with 250 million consumers. We have established double taxation agreements and transport connections with those markets, and all the major Portuguese companies are already working there. Therefore, Lisbon is the ideal location for businesses that are targeted to the Portuguese speaking countries markets. Lisbon is at the same time zone of London, with an international airport close to the center of the city, and first class internet services and all this at the most competitive costs in Europe. 11

ATLANTIC BUSINESS HUB LISBON: START UP CITY KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION STRATEGIC CLUSTERS LISBON - ENGINE OF A METROPOLITAN REGION The city has a special commitment in supporting and attracting talents, enterprises and investments. We work everyday to make Lisbon a business friendly place with plenty of opportunities for investors. Because companies are made of people, Lisbon has an unparalleled quality of life that makes it very attractive for talents and top managers and their families: international schools, a mild climate, an unique luminosity, hospitable people, diverse landscape, and an original gastronomy with a Mediterranean flavor. Lisbon is the European city capital with the highest number of golf courses and beaches, only 15 minutes away from the city’s centre. It´s probably the only European city capital where people can go surfing at lunch time. To an amazing quality of life, we add a second important factor to attract companies: a very special geographic position in global economy. 13

ATLANTIC BUSINESS HUB LISBON: START UP CITY KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION STRATEGIC CLUSTERS STRATEGIC CLUSTERS It is important to collaborate with the companies within the city, specially in the areas of more competitiveness. The logic of articulation of clusters is an efficient instrument for the concentration of resources and funding. We want that the strategic sectors for the city consolidate and renew continuously, ensuring the dissemination / transfer of knowledge and know-how. The starting point for the approach to the strategic sectors in Lisbon is based on a common methodology that includes indictors and the mapping of its major actors. The strategic partners actively participate in the development, validation and discussion of the programmes and initiatives for each sector. 47
  • 48. ATLANTIC BUSINESS HUB LISBON: START UP CITY KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION STRATEGIC CLUSTERS STRATEGIC CLUSTERS A city of INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES, SOFTWARE AND INTERNET Lisbon - the city and metropolitan area - has been very attractive to the installation of companies from the ICT sectors, as also as the Software industry and all companies in the Internet, as well as companies in the areas of Media and Audiovisual. 61% of the total ICT employment in Portugal is located in the Lisbon metropolitan area (source: INE, 2011). Companies such as Accenture, Microsoft, Teleperformance, Cisco, Nokia-Siemens, ASUS, ONI, Xerox, Epson, ZTE, LibertàGià, Hitachi Consulting and others were established or expanded in Lisbon during the last months. The distribution of the sub-sectors shows the predominance of the telecommunication services, consulting and software production. Many ICT events were organized in the city, including the Lisbon BIG APPS. The incubator Startup Lisboa Tech has a key-role in this sector. Until March 2013, start-ups located in this incubator had a total turnover of 3 millions Euros. A CREATIVE CITY The Lisbon area is the most creative one in Portugal. About 40% of creative employment and 60% of GVA are generated here by almost 22000 companies of this the industry. Lisbon has all the conditions to assume the role of a creative city, not only on a national scale, but especially on a European and global scale. It´s a multicultural and transcultural city, welcoming immigrants and visitors; these are factors that should also be used to enhance the attractiveness of talent. Lisbon creative economy blueprint: http://www.cross-innovation.eu/proud-to-present-the-lisbon-creative-economy-book/news/ A city of MARITIME ECONOMY If you are an investor, Lisbon offers a diverse set of values (natural, historical, material and immaterial) that provide resources for a wide range of economic activities. Its 19 km coastline and its port with excellent conditions and with a multidisciplinary functional profile (container terminal, cruises, fishing harbours, marinas, shipyards, beaches) make Lisbon a place of excellence to ensure success for the maritime companies. With several universities and scientific and technological research centres, Lisbon guarantees outstanding conditions for the development of products and services (biotechnology, marine microbiology, marine safety and biodiversity) of the knowledge-based economy. The headquarters of the European Maritime Safety Agency are located in Lisbon and the city is the host of some of the most important nautic events (Volvo Ocean Race, Tall Ships Race and others).

ATLANTIC BUSINESS HUB LISBON: START UP CITY KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION STRATEGIC CLUSTERS STRATEGIC CLUSTERS A city of TOURISM AND EXPERIENCES The city of Lisbon is in the top positions of some of the most important tourism rankings and awards. Indicators demonstrating the value of this high growth sector (accumulated from January to December 2012): total guests (4.131.591), total nights (9.471.981), foreign market guests (2.717.178), foreign market nights (6.989.377). Besides the city breaking, congress events and cruises, Lisbon offers an excellent potential for health and well being tourism, senior tourism, business related tourism and knowledge tourism. had a total turnover of 3 millions Euros. A city for HEALTH AND WELL-BEING On a national level, Lisbon has an important role as an area of concentration of high ranking research and development activities, demonstrated by recent trends, such as the installation of the Champalimaud Foundation in Lisbon, and the installation in the city in the last 12 months of several pharmaceutical companies, such as Leopharma, PPD, Bial and Hovione. Also the fact that Lisbon is living a deep transformation process in its hospitals network- with the closure of old hospitals located in central areas of the city and the opening of a large central hospital - will be an important “anchor” for the city to attract a diverse range of business and research actors in different areas of health sciences (pharmaceutical, biotechnology, pharmacogenomics, medical equipment and instruments, medical clinics, among others). One third of the health research centres in Portugal are established in Lisbon, employing about 920 investigators. Also private research centres have been increasingly choosing Lisbon to be established: two major examples in Lisbon region are Champalimaud Foundation centre and Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência. In 2011, the Gross Value Added (GVA) of companies in the Greater Lisbon related to the health sector represented 7.8% of national GVA.(source: INE). In 2011, the turnover of companies based in the Greater Lisbon reached 47.7% of the national level for the health sector. TOURISM HEALTH & WELL-BEING 49

ATLANTIC BUSINESS HUB LISBON: START UP CITY KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION STRATEGIC CLUSTERS LISBON COMMERCE Commercial activity today takes place in a very complex and demanding reality, due to factors such as competition, local shopping centers, the outlets, consumers demands and changing rhythms, styles and lifestyles. All the factors pose a challenge to the traditional economic commerce. Retail is a key economic activity for the city of Lisbon. The Lisbon City Council has been meeting with key stakeholders and industry associations and is currently involved in various projects, which enable and enhance the results obtained under the commercial census (retail, food and beverage and services) now done in a efficient, intelligent and interactive way. 64
  • 65. ATLANTIC BUSINESS HUB LISBON: START UP CITY KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION STRATEGIC CLUSTERS LISBON ACADEMY OF COMMERCE The Lisbon Academy of Commerce is an intervention programme to support and empower business owners and entrepreneurs of the commerce sector to potentiate their businesses or business ideas, by sharing innovative tools and methodologies focused on the “to do” approach, targeted to the revitalization of the sector and facing the challenges that the current situation imposes. In recent years, the traditional commerce has been struggling with challenges that has not always succeeded in giving response, losing competitiveness and visibility in the Portuguese business context. Aiming to support and empower commerce business owners and entrepreneurs in response to the challenges that the current reality imposes, the Lisbon City Council, UACS, SBI Consulting and Associação Daring Project have joined forces in the creation of the Lisbon Academy of Commerce. The Lisbon Academy of Commerce aims to be a reference in the revitalization of traditional commerce, establishing new ways of acting, positioning itself as an example of good practices and enhancing the development of the sector and the urban renewal of the commercial areas of the city.
