INNOVATION AND DEVELOPMENT

WITH ARTFUL INGENUITY

From the persistency  of a small group of students in 1995 up to the launch of internationally acclaimed projects, there are many moments in SAPO's history in which ingenuity and skill overcame massive complexity and helped pinpoint business opportunities.

Creativity and innovative thinking are a requirement for everyone working at SAPO, and our projects see constant improvement from internal ideas as they are folded into our products and services through agile methodologies, for we consider innovation to be everyone's responsibility.

DRIVING INNOVATIVE COMMUNITIES

Innovation is part of SAPO's DNA, coming to the fore in public events like SAPO Codebits, SAPO Summerbits or the Lisbon Maker Faire, in which we invite developer and maker communities to show their creativity to the world.

OPEN SOURCE TRADITION

As steadfast advocates of Open Source, SAPO not only acknowledges the joint efforts of software and hardware development communities but also makes freely available some of its core technology.
