As you can see, Tech.eu tracked more than 1,500 deals in total, roughly 65% of which had the size of the financing round disclosed. All in all, European technology startups raised approximately €12 billion last year, with ‘fintech’ and ‘e-commerce’ as the most popular verticals, unsurprisingly, alongside ‘health’ and ‘food.’

The most active investors in European technology companies were Germany’s High-Tech Gründerfonds, Index Ventures, and the Nordics’ Northzone VC.

Most of the capital flowed to German and British tech startups, and by a large margin. In fact, more than 50% of all the funding rounds raised by European tech companies happened in the UK and Germany. There was also plenty of deal-flow in Israel, not unexpectedly.
