Since we started, one of the key aims of the team at Tech.eu has been to track all of the funding rounds and exits in Europe, providing the most comprehensive and accurate record and analysis of the European technology scene.
We do this by meticulously monitoring 150+ sources in Europe and across 12+ languages – including Israel, Russia, the Balkans, Norway, Switzerland, Turkey and other countries we consider part of the European technology industry.
This is our third annual report on European tech exits (see 2014 and 2015), and each has proved to be a very valuable resource for corporates, M&A firms, venture capitalists and other prominent actors in Europe’s ecosystem.
You can purchase the full European Tech Exits 2016 report here for just £150.
