Do you want to ensure the growth of your SME's international business, through the creation and development of strategic partnerships with large companies and highly internationalized groups? It is one of the objectives of the new edition of the joint internationalization project that AIP is promoting, the PME Connect II. If you want to participate, please contact us: or 213 601 055.


A diagnosis of your SME, workshops in selected markets, training actions, external prospecting missions and international business meetings are the planned activities. The external prospecting missions and the coming of international buyers and investors to the business meetings will result from the strategic partnerships previously established, in Portugal and in the target markets. The SMEs selected to participate in the project will have the opportunity to consolidate strategic partnerships with the following highly internationalized groups: Mota Engil, SONAE, Pestana Group, EDP, Tekever, Sogrape, Outsystems and Farfetch.


This AIP project intends to develop, to enhance the international business of SMEs, a set of training actions through strategic partnerships between large companies, SMEs and partner institutions (AICEP, IAPMEI, Deloitte, Universities, Order Economists, Casa da América Latina and UCCLA, and international partner entities). Objective: to broaden the export base and increase companies' export intensity.
