About the Tech Tour

The Tech Tour was founded by Venture Capitalist Sven Lingjaerde in 1998. As of 2013, the Tech Tour is collaborating with the International Venture Club (IVC) and Europe Unlimited on all events and activities. We are a platform for Innovative Investors, Hi tech Entrepreneurs (from early to late stage), Corporates and Government Influencers. Our organization is committed to the development of emerging technology companies from Europe. Our contribution to the high tech industry is through the development of Regional Tech Tours and Industry Summits that bring together the entire technology ecosystem of local and global players. We also reward and celebrate entrepreneurship in Europe through our annual ‘Tech Tour Growth Award’ and ‘Innovation’ Awards.
