Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, London, Oslo and Paris – 10 September 2019 – The fifth edition of TechShare, Euronext’s dedicated programme for European tech companies focused on the IPO, brings together a record number of companies, including, for the first time, six companies from Ireland.
This year’s edition will include 132 tech companies, four times more than at the time of the programme’s launch in 2015, with participants representing a more mature corporate profile overall than in previous years.

  • On average, the participating companies each generate annual revenues of about €11 million and employ 80 people, versus 54 employees in the first edition.
  • Two-thirds of the companies are backed by private equity investors and have raised an average €18 million in capital before joining the programme. This compares to an average €6 million raised by participants in 2015.

Participants from Italy: Brandon Group, Credimi, Crest Optics, D-Orbit, e-Novia, Epipoli, Freeda, Healthware Group, Sailogy, Talent Garden, The Digital Box.

Since its inception in 2015, TechShare has steadily extended its reach across Europe.

Last year, the programme welcomed companies from Germany, Italy, Spain and Swizzerland. Participants from these countries will this year comprise 40% of the group, confirming the interest in TechShare among European tech companies across the region. This is further demonstrated by the inclusion of six companies from Ireland, who will be building on their participation in the IPOready programme run by Euronext Dublin.

Kickoff at Rotterdam’s Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship

The 132 tech companies participating will convene at Rotterdam’s Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship on 20 and 21 September for an academic campus on capital markets.
Over the course of two days, top executives from companies in the life sciences, cleantech and TMT industries across Europe will work with professors from the Rotterdam School of Management under the form of expert sessions and group workshops. Topics covered include the entrepreneurial mindset, leading growth, scaling beyong borders, attracting talents and managing ownership.

TechShare represents a clear example of how sharing knowledge and experience can help grow a company. Fueled by our own belief that entrepreneurship is the primary driver for innovation, we develop people and teams to master innovation within their organisation. In our quest to encourage entrepreneurship not only at home but across the globe, we look forward to welcoming 132 international tech companies to Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship and supporting them in developing their entrepreneurial competences with the academic knowledge and network of Erasmus University Rotterdam.
