POLITICO’s expert tech journalists take readers behind the scenes of Europe’s power centers to reveal who — beyond the familiar faces of well-established power players — is actually shaping Europe’s tech landscape. This ranking of reported profiles puts a spotlight on the motivations, ambitions and visions of the hugely influential personalities who are setting the trends, rewriting the rules and investing billions of euros into the future.
For each person selected, POLITICO will explain what they’ve done to make it onto the Tech 28 list, what ‘superpowers’ make them unique, and how they are set to impact technology in coming years.
The list will consist of an overall number one — the most powerful person in European tech. The other 27 will be broken down in 3 categories: Rulemakers, Rulebreakers and Visionaries.
