Scytl Once Again Included in Tech Tour 50 High Growth Companies in Europe

Barcelona & Geneva, March 17, 2016 – For the second consecutive year, Scytl has been ranked as one of Europe´s top 50 high growth companies and included in the 2016 Tech Tour Growth 50. Chaired by Jean-Michel Deligny of Silverpeak, the selection committee of the top 50 companies was composed of international venture capital firms, advisers and experts including Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Accel Partners, Highland Capital Partners Europe, Amadeus Capital Partners, DN Capital and The World Economic Forum.

“We are honoured to have been included once again in the Tech Tour Growth 50 and being recognized as visionaries of technology that positively impacts the lives of citizens worldwide. Scytl continues to drive the game changing technology that is helping governments across the globe leverage innovation for improved democracy, citizen empowerment and public transparency. But this is not something we achieve on our own, this is driven by the trust in our election modernization technology from governments in over 40 countries such as France, Australia, USA, Spain, Brazil, India and Switzerland,” states Pere Vallés, CEO of Scytl.

Together with Silverpeak Investment Bank and international investors, Tech Tour – a platform that facilitates high-tech growth companies to develop strategic relations with investors – researched and evaluated over 175 European private tech companies at a sub one billion US dollar valuation.

The selection of companies was created using Tech Tour´s own database, publically available data, proprietary insight from Silverpeak Investment Banking and the Go4Venture platform for the initial list of companies that met 3 or the 4 financial criteria. This list was then supplemented by additional “wild card” companies based on innovation potential, management teams and pedigree (quality of backers, advisory board, past awards won and top sector listings).

The billion dollar “unicorn” successes that grab our attention are just the tip of the iceberg. The Tech Tour Growth 50 puts the next layer of Europe’s high-tech, high-growth businesses in the limelight. The Tech Tour Growth 50 Companies have created over 8, 000 high-tech jobs, attracted over $3.5 billion of investment and have an estimated combined valuation of $14.2 billion. This is a clear demonstration of Europe’s strength, potential and competitiveness in scaling-up tech businesses,” concludes William Stevens, Managing Director at Tech Tour.
