Tech Tour held its 13th Annual Growth Award ceremony at the Tech Tour Growth Summit gala dinner in Lausanne, on the evening of 28 March 2019.
A Selection Committee identified the Tech Tour Growth50 - including European high growth private companies. The award winners were selected from the Tech Tour Growth50 List. The prestigious Growth Award was presented to the 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 was presented to a company that has a visionary product or breakthrough technology and is experiencing visible hyper-growth.
Not every year however when warranted, the Selection Committee chooses to honour a third entrepreneur with the Special Jury Prize. This award recognises an entrepreneur whose company has great potential and is ‘one to watch’.
