A look at U.S. and European late stage VC investment
July 01, 2015
As highlighted in our 2Q 2015 U.S. Venture Industry Report, the first quarter of the year proved the continuing strength of the U.S. venture capital market, particularly at the late stage ($8.3 billion of capital invested). European venture capital was no different, with €1.9 billion of its total €2.8 billion invested coming at the late stage, as covered in our 2Q 2015 European PE Breakdown.
As U.S. VC activity in Europe increases, it's worth taking a look at some U.S.-based investors that have been the most involved in Europe's late stage activity since 2013:
With an alternative office in London, Beringea has made 108 deals across 89 companies within Europe since its inception, including six late stage investments in Europe since 2013
Intel Capital has made eight late stage investments in Europe during the timeframe, with European investments accounting for the third-largest portion of the firm's deal flow (behind the U.S. and Asia)
Since 2013, Accel Partners has completed nine late stage investments in Europe—a region in which the firm has completed some 125 deals in total
