European Venture Report

Q2 2020

European Venture Report

July 29, 2020

The latest edition of the European Venture Report examines trends in dealmaking, exits, and fundraising in the region, with a spotlight on the UK & Ireland. Even amid the COVID-19 pandemic, European VC deal value notched the third largest quarterly figure on record in Q2 2020. VC deals with CVC participation also remained resilient as tech-focused businesses continued to draw corporate attention. Despite a slow start in Q1, VC exits recovered in the second quarter, but still look to pace lower than in 2019. In addition, fundraising stayed strong despite lockdowns, and we expect specialist funds targeting individual sectors to proliferate going forward.
