Creation of a new alliance of European tech companies

A new pan-European alliance of EU tech companies has just been created and was launched in Strasbourg on 27 October 2015.

Called the “European Tech Alliance”, it is described as  “a group of fast-growing tech companies that have been built in Europe. All members have recently found success and now want to scale up, so as to continue to grow and compete globally”. The President of the Alliance is Niklas Zennström, CEO of Atomico and Founder of Skype.

As indicated in a press release, the Alliance intends to “work with European Union institutions and Member States and commit to share their experience of building tech companies in Europe, so that any legislation or regulation that the EU looks to introduce nurtures the tech sector and enables it to compete on a global level”.
