Objective

To identify the upcomming and leading top 25 privately held companies from Spain and Portugal and to promote investment by bringing international investors together with the region's next wave of entrepreneurial winners.

Iker Marcaide, Founder of Zubi Labs says "It is a pleasure to be part of this team and to facilitate investment opportunities between the best European Venture Capital investors and the best emerging technology companies of Portugal and Spain. As an entrepreneur, I know access to the smartest money is key for the success of your venture, but the process is not often straightforward.  On the other side, for an investor to identify and reach the best entrepreneurs in a new country means having to do endless research and face possible language barriers. We want to close this gap and expose the hidden gems in these countries in a digestible and vetted pipeline for investors, worth taking the time to check out."


Stephan Morais, Executive Director, Caixa Capital says ‘’I was delighted to accept the role of Co-President of the Iberian Tech Tour and in particular to host the participants in Lisbon. This is the right time to come and see for yourself why the Portuguese startup scene is so dynamic with global class research, technology and teams, great incubators and accelerators and why a growing number of international sophisticated investors are starting to discover the opportunity to access a highly educated and globally minded young generation. From digital and ICT to medical devices and biotech companies, there is a new country well beyond the sun, wine and golf everyone knows about. In particular, the presence of major European LPs during the event will ensure the whole value chain of the industry will be in Lisbon for the Tech Tour.’’

The City of Lisbon and the Region of Valencia now have something exciting in common, in late June they were named European Entrepreneurial Region (EER) for 2015. The EER project identifies and rewards EU regions that show a remarkable and innovative entrepreneurial strategy regardless of their size or economic situation. It is aimed at showcasing the regions with the most forward-thinking vision and plan and the winners wear the EER badge proudly for that specific year.
