Welcome to the third edition of our International Tech Hubs ebook, brought to you by BDO’s plugd:in platform. Our latest insights provide new and exciting insights into some of the world’s fastest growing tech hubs. Featuring knowledge from BDO’s expert partners from around the globe, we analyse each location to assess the benefits and advantages available to start-ups, scale-ups, inward investors, established businesses and investors, to help broaden their horizons and showcase unrealized opportunities for international growth and expansion.

• Brazil: a growing global influence with direct links to the USA

• Japan: a truly international country with a first-class talent pool

• Portugal: one of Europe’s most progressive start-up ecosystems

• Saudi Arabia: the largest ICT market in the Middle East

• Thailand: a thriving digital ecosystem with a can-do business culture

• Indonesia: a rising investment destination for forward-thinking stakeholders.

Over the past year, as the COVID 19 pandemic continued to put limits on day-to-day business in many sectors, technology businesses have scaled and innovated strongly to help businesses to accelerate transformation to meet the growing demands of our digital lifestyle. All over the world, governments have redoubled their efforts to invest in and provide for tech start-ups, creative digital solutions and new intellectual properties, in mind of facilitating their own infrastructures to ride out the pandemic and realise a new and prosperous future on the other side.
