WHO ARE WE?

The successes achieved throughout our history speak for us!

Over thirty years ago, the brothers João Paulo and Jorge Sá Couto began their adventure in the technological universe. jp sá couto began with a premium technical assistance service that later moved foward into the Distribution sector.

In mid-2000s the experience, knowledge and long-lasting relationships with partners recognized worldwide, such as Microsoft and Intel, resulting from our work in Distribution, gave us the opportunity to fly even higher. In 2008, we pioneered the development of technology especially designed for education and we implement the very first large-scale ICT education project in Portugal, which still is considered the biggest project in Europe.

In January 2017, founded by jp sá couto, jp.group is a Portuguese business group, with a solid international presence and whose business activity takes place mainly in the information and communication technology sector.

With a deep knowledge in the local and global technology sector, jp.group integrates a diverse set of companies in the areas of Education, Services and Investments. jp.group’s performance is guided by a strong set of values – Ambition, Humility, Persistence, Integrity and Change – always seeking to meet the real needs of its customers.
