“We launched Protechting with Fidelidade three years ago,” said Haifeng last June at the start of Protechting’s third edition.

“We are happy to see Portugal becoming a reference point for the development of startups in Europe. More and more European unicorns are growing in Portugal, more and more partners are joining us at Protechting,” he added.
