WeTransfer has been included in the 2018 Tech Tour Growth 50, a group of Europe’s most promising tech scale up companies with “unicorn” potential.
The Tech Tour Growth 50 is the result of an annual research project ran by Tech Tour, a platform that helps high-tech growth companies develop strategic relations with investors. This year they have researched and evaluated - with a selection committee of international investors - over 280 European private tech companies at a sub-one billion US dollar valuation.
To establish the final 50, the selection committee considered prospective companies’ achievement, impact and momentum.
William Stevens, Managing Director of Tech Tour, commented “We are delighted to recognize WeTransfer in The Tech Tour Growth 50 for 2018. When we launched the Tech Tour Growth 50 in 2015 only 127 companies qualified for selection, this year we had 284. Each year our work is becoming more difficult: there are now so many great European companies. This makes WeTransfer's inclusion in the Tech Tour Growth 50 a real mark of success.”
The CEOs of the shortlisted companies will gather at the annual Tech Tour Growth Forum in Geneva from March 22nd – 23rd where two companies will receive the 2018 Tech Tour Growth Award and Tech Tour Innovation Award.
Founded in 1998, Tech Tour provides a community facilitating investment into world-class entrepreneurs with event and online matching platforms between growing and emerging innovative companies and investors across borders, regions, sectors and stages. Tech Tour is also the trade name for Europe Unlimited.
