A changing landscape in the world economy has caused serious damage to companies’ growth plans. On the other hand, many entrepreneurs are finding that these are the perfect times to achieve sustained company growth.
The group of entrepreneurs behind Almeida provide investors and entrepreneurs with a service platform for supporting fast growing small and medium businesses in achieving their full potential. We support entrepreneurs in clarifying their strategies, improving and extending business development capabilities whilst simultaneously supporting them in scaling up operations, enabling sustainable revenue growth.
The background of our team includes creation and structuring of fast growing companies and change management projects within large and small organisations in high-tech sectors, for companies such as Siemens, Oracle, Westland Helicopters, Critical Software or Vision-Box.
The name of the company is inspired in the location that sits on the Portuguese side of the border with Spain, close to Ciudad Rodrigo; this location was highly relevant during the peninsular wars two centuries ago. The origin of the word is the Arab “Al ma’ida” and stands for “the family that lives on the plateau” or in a more liberal interpretation “those who prefer vantage points”.
