State of European Tech – The future is invented in Europe: Presentation of the report by Atomico


The presentation of the report “State of European Tech – The future is invented in Europe” is organised by the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) with the support of Startup Europe (DG CONNECT) and Finnova Foundation, under the frame of StartUp Europe Awards.

Commissioned and produced by Atomico, a European-based global venture capital firm, in partnership with Slush, the organisers of the Slush technology conference in Helsinki, Finland, the report outlines three key trends underlying the growing influence and success of the European technology industry. This report is by far one of the most comprehensive presentation regarding the current state of the tech scene in Europe and will benefit the European institutions work towards startups with validated data. The presentation is an excellent opportunity to highlight the importance of evidence based policy making on startups policy. 

Tom Wehmeier, Principal & Head of Research at Atomico, wrote the 2016 report which was published at the Slush conference in Helsinki in November and received widespread media coverage from the FT, BBC and Wired to Bloomberg, CNBC, Les Echos, BBC, FAZ, Expansion and El Economista.
