Promoting World-Class Innovation
About Tech Tour
The Tech Tour Community started as two separate organisations 20 years ago - Europe Unlimited, founded in 1998 by William Stevens in Brussels, and Tech Tour, founded in 1998 by Venture Capitalist Sven Lingjaerde in Geneva. Both realised the need for a trustworthy and transparent environment, in which experts could share best practices and transfer knowledge across a network to identify and support the best emergent technologies in Europe.
Throughout the years Tech Tour and Europe Unlimited have been bringing together the most active corporates and investors in Europe and connecting them with the most promising entrepreneurs to establish smart partnerships and drive innovation. In 2013, Europe Unlimited and Tech Tour joined their efforts and now help entrepreneurs and investors realise their full journey of innovation, from the initial concept all the way through to valuation.
Operating under the name Tech Tour, we have since then become one of the largest investor-oriented communities in Europe connecting entrepreneurs, investors and corporate partners from across the world. Over 2000 high-tech companies apply and 750 investors take part in our 25 leading tech events held each year.
We aim to accelerate world-class innovation by promoting it through a vibrant online Community and in person at 25 tech events held each year. Find out how you can get involved by joining our Community today.
