Tech Tour, together with Silverpeak Investment Bank and in conjunction with a selection committee of international investors from firms like Accel Partners, DN Capital, Earlybird and Highland Europe, have researched and evaluated over 175 European private tech companies valued under $1 billion.
The organisation claims the Tech Tour Growth 50 companies have created over 8, 000 high-tech jobs, attracted over $3.5 billion of investment and have an estimated combined valuation of $14.2 billion.
