Our good friends at Techstars Berlin are back with an evolution of their European investors map.
The first version, which was released in early January, included a static map and a list of more than 300 investors who tend to invest in European startups, quickly becoming a very useful tool for entrepreneurs looking to raise funding.
Techstars, in collaboration with our very own data partners at Dealroom, are now releasing the second iteration of this project: a digital 'investors in Europe' map, that makes it even easier to navigate the region's main technology hubs to find who is investing in European tech companies.
As in the previous version, all of the investors highlighted in the map can be found in this Google sheet.
According to Dealroom, since 2014, startups in Europe have raised over €23 billion with a whopping €17 billion raised in London, Berlin, Stockholm, Paris and Tel Aviv.
The top 5 cities in which investors have offices in Europe according to Techstars and Dealroom's research are: London, Stockholm, Berlin, Paris, Helsinki.
The next version of the project, which is already in development, will be a landscape map that will intelligently show the number of VCs (size of the circles) in each city & how much funding in each city startups have raised (colour of the circles) since 2014.
The map will be sent to investors in the above list, accelerators, incubators and coworking spaces all around Europe. If, as a member of one of these organisations, you'd like to also receive a copy, you can do it here.
