Skype founder: ‘EU tech isn’t falling behind, it’s picking up the pace’

EXCLUSIVE/ European Union tech is no longer falling behind its international competitors, Skype’s co-founder told EurActiv. Instead, it is picking up the pace at the “best time” to be a tech investor or entrepreneur in the bloc.

Niklas Zennström is co-founder of Skype and CEO of Atomico. In 2005, Skype was sold to eBay for $3.1 billion, the largest EU venture capital exit to date. Niklas is also president of the European Tech Alliance, which launched yesterday  (27 October) in the European Parliament in Strasbourg. He spoke to EurActiv deputy news editor James Crisp.

You can listen to the interview on Soundcloud or read the transcript on EurActiv.
