After a period of turbulence stemming from political uncertainties, Europe is looking to get its venture capital industry back on track. The 2Q 2017 Europe Venture Report breaks down the data showing where the recent declines have stemmed from, and how record fundraising levels are set to give a boost to the asset class.
Highlights of the report:
- Paris is set to benefit from new policies encouraging investment and innovation to become a major tech and VC hub in Europe
- Delivery Hero's IPO was the largest VC-backed offering since 2014, and may be a benchmark for investor appetite for further IPOs in 2017
- Last year's record fundraising is being followed by further high levels, even though the number of vehicles closed continues to dwindle
