Vincent Hebbelynck, Business Manager – PMV


"Tech Tour Growth Europe in Paris was an eye opening, productive and exciting event.  As always, Tech Tour managed to bring together under one roof an array of some of Europe’s most active investors, innovative growth technology companies and those who support the ecosystem under one roof, which sparked interesting panels and conversations, and the forming of new connections. I particularly enjoyed moderating the panel “Scaling Growth: Best practices by entrepreneurs”. I was joined by my panelists Jean Schmidt (Jolt Capital), Julian Kley (Avi Medical), Peter Windischhofer (refurbed), Mark Kotter ( and Alena Harbatava (Cubbit), where we discussed a wide array of topics and shared experiences that both entrepreneurs and investors will find valuable as they or their portfolio companies chase growth."


Jose Campos, Partner – Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati


"This Tech Tour program was an incredible opportunity to hear from leaders in Europe’s tech environment. The insights that investors could share from working across the landscape, perspective from other founders and the learning from the Tech Tour team were invaluable. We have gained so much from our participation in the EIC Scaling Up program and the  capstone event in Paris was a nice way to reconnect with everyone and take a moment to celebrate all that we have accomplished. The mentoring sessions and the dedication from everyone at Tech Tour to help us improve our story and amplify it were the highlights. Behind a great program, there are even more incredible people. Thank you! "


Veronica Orvalho, CEO – Didimo


"I was part of the Tech Tour Growth event in Paris on March 8th and thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a great mix of entrepreneurs and investors mingling in a very relaxed atmosphere with plenty of opportunity to engage and interact. As the companies and their opportunities were more oriented toward the scale-up phase, rather than the start-up phase, also the investors present were there with that mindset, which strongly helped the quality of the interactions. Finally, I also enjoyed the panels discussions, in particular where the entrepreneurs shared their experiences!"


Johan Feenstra, CEO – Smart Photonics


"The Tech Tour Growth Europe was one of the best events in this space I have been to. It was a very intimate setup that allowed meetings with leading investors and entrepreneurs from the Deeptech sector."
