These datagraphics break down 2015 VC activity across key European regions

As our 2015 Year in Review series comes to an end, we break down the VC investment activity in the U.K./Ireland, GSA, France/Benelux and Nordic regions, examining how each fared during the year.

We wrap up our 2015 in Review series by taking a look at several major regions across Europe: U.K./Ireland; GSA, France/Benelux and the Nordics. Europe saw a decline of VC activity in many areas when compared to 2014, though capital invested was up across the board. Highlights from our datagraphics include: £3.4 billion of capital invested within the U.K. and Ireland, and €3.6 billion invested within the GSA region; France/Benelux saw more than 370 deals completed during 2015; and Spotify led the way in the Nordics with the largest deal of the year.
