Link was created in 2000 as a spin-off of INESC, the leading IT technology institute in the Lisboa area. Transforming businesses through digitalization was our vision from the very start and that was even embodied in our name: Link Consulting.
Link culture is passionately involved in Technology and Innovation and we conduct several R&D projects, some contributing to PhDs and Master Thesis.
Link’s culture is highly committed in offering our clients a high standard of services always trying to create value, understanding the client’s key problems, delivering on time, and improving the quality of our deliverables. After two decades, we are proud that most of our clients are recurrent and many are decade long collaborations.
Also from the beginning, we are highly interested in International collaborations with clients and partners and we have a long history of working in several countries mainly in EU, Brazil, Switzerland, Emirates, Cape Verde, Angola.
We strongly believe that our best asset is the quality of the professionals working in Link, so we strive to create a demanding but fairly open and non-hierarchical company culture, retaining key people and offering all employees the means to update and progress their technical and professional skills.
