While you were away, summer came and summer went, and the story of constant progress of the European tech investment market continues.
The Headline Transactions Index (HTI) continues to plough on, and similarly the Scaleup Index (focused on €5-100m financings) is progressing too. Year-to-date the overall market nearly doubled in number of transactions, and increased by more than 50% in value. Within that, the market for mega rounds (≥€100m) exploded (doubled in size and value – and pulling the whole of the market with it), and activity at the early-stage continued unabated. Comparatively, the Scaleup segment progressed less, with a 50% increase in number, but only a 33% progression by value.
