our mission is to unlock that value

The Nasdaq-listed Tio Tech SPAC was established to partner with a fast-growing EU tech company and provide their founders with an efficient and fair way to enter the public markets.

EU Founders Need a BETTER WAY to go public in the US

The traditional IPO process is a costly distraction to fast-growing founders and their teams. 

We’ve experienced this challenge ourselves as founders and we believe this is one of the primary reasons that so many amazing companies in Europe continue to remain private or sell off without unlocking their full potential.

Tio Tech was established to partner with a fast-growing EU tech company and provide their founders with an efficient and fair way to enter the public markets.

As founders of fast-growing EU tech companies ourselves with deep roots in the EU tech ecosystem, we believe there is no better partner that a founder in Europe can find to take them public.
