Atlantico Business Development provides consultancy services to high profile customers in Portuguese speaking countries on both sides of the South Atlantic: Brazil, Angola, Cabo Verde and Mozambique. We focus on the maritime and agribusiness sectors, though we do have experience in other sectors, such as higher education, renewable energies, water and oil & gas.
Be welcome to check out the countries where we operate as well as the services we provide (consultancy, business missions, information, export coaching) by making your selection in the menu above.
We rely on our strong (10-20 years) history and experience in our core markets Brazil, Angola, Mozambique and Cabo Verde, our excellent political and business networks in those countries as well as in the Netherlands, our strong language and intercultural skills and our effective ways of communicating and operating.
If you or your company or organisation is looking for market entry in one of our core markets, then contact us to see how we can help you and get things done: with the right people, within the required timeframe and in an appropriate way.
As of 2012 we have also taken up developing new markets in Latin America, such as Panama, Peru and the Dominican Republic, all stable, growing markets for exporters and investors. We also continue to offer our services in South Africa, where we have been active for over 20 years.
Atlantico Business Development is a network organization. We operate with a small and dedicated team from our headoffice in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, while maintaining an extensive network of consultants and assistants in our core markets. We are able to upscale our team for a specific project with specific demands at any time.
Atlantico Business Development is based in Rotterdam, the number one port on the Atlantic. But we operate mainly in the South Atlantic: in Brazil, Angola and Cabo Verde, where the lingua franca is Portuguese. To honour that, we call ourselves Atlantico (in Portuguese) instead of Atlantic. Our legendary English language online news portal Atlantico Weekly (2008-2014) was born out of the same idea.
Atlantico Business Development has recently produced a practical guide for doing business in the emerging agribusiness sector in Cabo Verde. Cabo Verde today is growing fast as a holiday destination for European tourists, combining political stability, security and guaranteed good weather. At this moment the country receives about 600.000 tourists per year, a number that is expected to rise by 2019 to around 1 million per year.
Cabo Verde even has the potential to host between 2 and 3 million tourists per year in a decade or so, which would make the country one of Africa’s most important tourist destinations. These fast growing numbers of European tourists will need to be supplied continuously with good quality fresh food and other products, which at this moment poses an enormous challenge to the Cabo Verde tourist sector. Read more about the guide and how to obtain it here.
