The Alliance is a group of fast-growing tech companies that have been built in Europe. All members have recently found success and now want to scale up, so as to continue to grow and compete globally.

Europe is good at tech and the sector is already contributing enormously to the economy both in terms of driving investment and creating highly skilled jobs. The Alliance members want to use their collective experience to feed into the push to strengthen Europe’s digital economy.
