The TechCapMarkets project is a collaboration between Tech Tour, PME Finance and IESE Business School funded by the European Union and guided by an Advisory Board of market experts. In April 2017 the European Commission, under the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme, issued a call for proposals to improve the access of innovative small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to alternative finance.

Within this context TechCapMarkets deals with the specific task of improving the supply of alternative finance to innovative SMEs, by examining ways to improve the opportunities for fast-growth tech companies to list on European stock exchanges. And in turn improve the exit, and return, opportunities for private market tech investors.

The research carried out produced a series of recommendations from market experts to improve the opportunities for European tech companies to list on European Stock Exchanges. It blends expertise from a wide-range of market practitioners including venture capital, entrepreneurs, stock exchange operators, policy makers, investment banks and asset managers. All of whom have an important part to play in ensuring European tech companies can meet their full potential.
