“In DIGITALEUROPE’s How to spend it: A digital investment plan for Europe, one of our success target for a stronger digital Europe is the continent being home to 25 per cent of the world’s unicorns”, according to DIGITALEUROPE, the leading European digital technology association. Today, only 12 per cent of the world’s unicorns are from Europe. A unicorn is a privately held company less than ten years old that is valued at over $1 billion.
The Future Unicorn Award is a collaboration between national trade associations affiliated with DIGITALEUROPE. Each national association nominates one small company from their country that has the potential to become Europe’s next tech leader. The Award is now being held for the fourth year in a row and is a testimony of the vital importance of SMEs in Europe and the wider digital ecosystem.
This year’s edition, for the first time held online, has already top EU leaders as confirmed speakers, including President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen and President of the European Council Charles Michel.
