The German company points out that the major reason to choose Porto to settle its technological centre "was a comprehensive set of factors, such as growth and cultural indicators, namely highly skilled available workforce, educational structures, regulatory framework, entrepreneurial mentality and quality of life”.

Mike Eissele, TeamViewer’s Technical Director Highlights that Porto has "many great universities and an extensive pool of talented engineers that are highly motivated to boost the next digitisation wave”, adding that "we are really excited to be an active part of such a vibrant technological hotspot”. Eissele goes as far as ensuring that the multinational is already "working in such a way to expanding the limits of our solutions and accelerating innovations with TeamViewer technology made in Portugal".

The Minister of State, Economy and Digital Transition, Pedro Siza Vieira is cited in the communiqué, stating that "TeamViewer’s decision to develop cutting-edge innovation in the areas of augmented reality and the Internet of Things, from Porto, is a strong evidence of the potential of attraction of Portugal as an emergent technological ecosystem”.
