MORE THAN A PORTAL, A WINDOW TO THE WORLD

Our history goes hand in hand with the Internet's. We were born in 1995 as SAPO - Serviço de Apontadores Portugueses (Portuguese Link Service) at Aveiro University and quickly took the lead in technological innovation and  digital content.

A million people visit SAPO on a daily basis, representing more than a third of Portuguese online users. We are the main Internet destination in our international footprint, having built that leadership together with prime content partners and the support of a loyal audience.

SAPO's homepage mirrors this history. More than a portal, it is the meeting point for services, information and entertainment for Portuguese-speaking communities.

A HOUSEHOLD BRAND

The SAPO brand is nearly two decades old, and is a household brand for Internet services, content and technology in the geographies we operate in. We are a global brand in the Portuguese-speaking Internet, and an international innovation and technology powerhouse.

Our core values are modernity, innovation, technology, flexibility and disruption.

BUILDING COMMUNITIES

Going beyond our online presence, SAPO has fostered and supported a number of initiatives that bind together all kinds of communities.
