Europe is home to prominent startup and innovation hubs in cities like Berlin, Stockholm, and London. However, the tech boom is diffusing across the continent, and startups are emerging far beyond the established tech hotbeds.
Since 2012, nearly $55B has been invested across more than 7,200 equity deals to tech startups in the European continent.
This includes investment in leading tech companies such as online used car exchange Auto1 Group in Germany, online payment solutions provider Klarna in Sweden, and on-demand ride hailing company Cabify in Spain.
Using CB Insights data, we identified the most well-funded VC-backed tech startups in each country in Europe, based on disclosed equity funding. Collectively, the startups on our map have raised just over $8.5B in disclosed equity funding (as of 4/8/2019).
See the full infographic below, and the complete list of startups at the end of this post.
Our analysis excludes debt funding and only considers tech companies that have raised at least $1M of equity funding. Companies included have all raised funding since 2014. We exclude subsidiaries and majority-owned startups.
