PAULO FERNANDES


I fought many Trojan wars and when I thought I had had enough of those battles I came to the concluded that Lisbon was my destiny.
I fought against all odds and when I thought I had enough of those battles I came to the conclusion that Lisbon was my destiny.
Getting into the art world was my first step to realizing the importance that paying attention to details and appreciating the beauty and subtleties of art has. For me there is beauty in both perfection and imperfection and that is what makes any piece unique.
And now, with the birth of O Benefício, I am born again. This is my dream and this is what I want to share with you.

RICARDO NUNES


I am a Jack Kerouac admirer and an enthusiast of the social media ecosystems and of the laws of Raoult, Henry and Dalton.
I can therefore state that I have always sought a balance between my spirit’s intense passions and the need to be part of something different and that is the result of a humanism that I seek to profess always. O Benefício is this and so much more.

The Parque Tecnológico de Óbidos (PTO) is the first incubator in the country to have two universities, a polytechnic and a technical school in its board. The location and global positioning of the Parque Tecnológico de Óbidos is, particularly directed to the creative industries, allowing to differentiate itself from the existing offer, resulting in a critical advantage, where the partnership with the universities translates into the development of research projects related to the companies.
