The recently published Q4 2016 MoneyTree Venture Capital Funding Report shows:

  •   22% increase in Europe investments
  •   Reduction in US investments overall
  •   37% reduction in Silicon Valley investments

Europe invested $3b in 498 deals while the US put $12.2b into 1065 deals. The deal size in Europe remains at approximately half that of the US, with an average of $6m (EU) vs. $11.5m (US). 

The report also highlights AI as one of the large growth areas, and we see huge potential in this space over the next few years.

We feel the European Venture Capital space is one that offers huge potential, with much more capital efficient businesses. We continue to work with the best European companies to progress both the expansion of the European Startup Community, and the maturing of the market.

We look forward to being a part of the rise of the European start up community.
