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 Portugal and 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.
