  • UK investment nearly doubled in 2017: what’s happening underneath February 9, 2018 1:10 pm
    Click image to enlarge. Open the PDF for a higher-resolution. The advent of big tech and mega-rounds UK investment nearly doubled from $4.2 to $7.8 billion in 2017. Mega-rounds were a major growth driver. For instance, 2017 saw 22 rounds over $50 million, compared with nine in 2016. However mega-rounds were not the only factor: even when excluding the top-10 rounds in each year, investment increased from $3.2 to a new record of $5.1 billion. Note that the decline in number of rounds will likely reverse, once all smaller 2017 rounds have been announced. Is UK investment overheating?  One way to answer this question is by comparing investment per capita. U.S. investment in 2017 was $250 per capita (320 million people, ~$80 billion(1) investment). UK investment in 2017 was $120 per capita (65 million people, ~$7.8 billion investment). The chart below gives a pan-European view: The above chart indicates that European VC investment still has plenty of upside. European tech is growing up. And the UK acts as a crucial tech hub to Europe’s 700 million people. UK investment now accounts for 37% of all venture capital investment in Europe. Indeed, the vast majority of funded UK companies are active across Europe. More capital is available than ever before Europe’s venture capital industry has been on the rise with more capital available than ever. At the same time, UK investment from the USA and Asia more than doubled in 2017. Corporate investment into the UK also more than doubled. Investment from domestic UK funds also grew, but less so (more on... The post UK investment nearly doubled in 2017: what’s happening underneath appeared first on Blog | Dealroom.

  • 10 data-driven insights about European tech in 2017 January 8, 2018 10:40 am
    Insight #1: A record €19.4 billion in venture capital was invested into European companies in 2017 Investors continued betting on European tech at a record pace. Preliminary Dealroom data shows that €19.4 billion in Venture Capital was invested into European companies in 2017, a staggering 36% increase from €14.3 billion in 2016. Including Israel the combined figure was €22.3 billion in 2017, a 31% increase from €17.0 billion in 2016. As a result, European tech companies have more capital at their disposal than ever before, available to grow their workforce, invest in technology, in marketing and make acquisitions. The number of rounds declined, from 3,900 in 2016 to 3,377 in 2017, a decline of 13%. A caveat is needed here however, because many 2017 rounds will appear with a 12-24 month delay (especially smaller rounds, which often appear only once a follow-on round has been announced). Pro tip: click below and customise the chart by adding/removing keywords (e.g. Germany as location or Series A rounds). Talk to us on Intercom (bottom-right) for help. Insight #2: Bigger and more mega-rounds than ever; but even excluding those mega-rounds 2017 was still a record by far There were 19 rounds above €100 million in 2017, compared with 10 in 2016 (90% increase). The rise of mega-rounds was driven by corporate investment activity, involvement of big global funds like SoftBank, and an overarching trend towards big tech (i.e. market consolidation). Importantly to note however, that even excluding the top 3 or even top 10 rounds in each year, 2017 was a record by far, as...
