Where the European VC Money is

FacebookLinkedInShare

When I think of VCs in the UK, Nordics and the Continent this list seems to be missing a lot of the major players, but I still found this post from Mike Butcher at TechCrunch to be pretty interesting. VCs often do NOT publish on their web sites how much funding they raised and when these funds closed. This information is important so that entrepreneurs can better understand where any single VC is in the investment cycle of their fund and how that fits with the current or future rounds of the startup raising funding.
