As the global venture slowdown is reflected in a decline in European VC activity, PitchBook's 1Q 2016 European Venture Industry provides a data-driven snapshot of current trends. Is the slowing of investment in Europe primarily due to broader macro concerns rather than the fear of overheating? If U.S. VCs are exhibiting more caution domestically, will they increase their sourcing in a more reasonably priced Europe? Sponsored by Merrill DataSite, the report delves into venture investment by sector and size, as well as stage and region, to provide context to those and other questions. In addition, it features updates on venture-backed exits and fundraising totals.
Report Highlights Include:
- 1Q 2016 league tables
- Activity by sector and size
- Spotlight on Nordics' venture investment
- Exits & fundraising
