EuropaTech

Welcome to EuropaTech, where Europe’s leading innovators ignite positive change.
As the new decade begins, Europe is a giant marketplace where venture capital is pouring in and startups are growing into unicorns faster than ever. Advanced technologies are fueling economic resilience. Companies large and small are deploying digital to engage new communities within and beyond Europe’s borders, and Europe is leading the worldwide conversation about data democratisation.

EuropaTech in 2021

This year's program is enriched by specific European prizes. The Next Unicorn Award has the goal to promote and strenghten the European tech ecosystem and it rewards fast-growing scale-ups on the way to become Unicorns.

Startups Challenges Launched by European Partners

Three Startups Challenges, hosted on VivaTech's platform, were powered by a European partner, We Are, within the EuropaTech program. These challenges were a call for solutions to create more value for live shows, to help brands conquer second-hand markets, and to find new ways to engage audiences.
