Recently we started analysing international fund-flows within Europe. Below is one way to present these flows. The left-hand side shows the location of the companies raising capital. The right-hand side shows where the VC funds are based. A significant portion is coming from the USA/UK, with most of these USA funds having a presence in London. This analysis of course further underscores London’s key position as the epicenter of European venture capital.
To go one level deeper with this analysis, take a look at the following investment matrix (click image to open).
This analysis is based on 2015 data. There are some imperfections in the data, partly due to the fact that for any investment round with more than one investor (most rounds), the allocation is usually not known.
