The Tech Tour Growth Awards

The 13th edition of the Tech Tour Growth Awards will take place at the Growth Summit Networking Dinner in Lausanne and two new CEO's will be celebrated. The dinner will also feature CEOs from the 4th edition of the Tech Tour Growth 50, a list of the top growth companies in Europe.


This prestigious Growth Award will be presented to a European technology entrepreneur whose private company has had the biggest impact, on the largest number of people, in the least amount of time.


The Innovation Award is presented to a company that has a visionary product or breakthrough technology and is experiencing visible hyper-growth.


This year’s winners will be chosen from the Tech Tour Growth 50 following a rigorous quantitative and qualitative selection process - see  here for more information. The Selection Committee for the Award and the Tech Tour Growth 50 are the same.
