April 2024 report: With €3.7B raised, year-over-year investment decreased 5 per cent

According to the Tech.eu database, European tech companies raised €3.7 billion over the course of April 2024 in some 320 deals.

This figure represents a decrease of around 15 per cent compared to the previous month (March 2024 saw an investment volume of €4.4 billion) and also a decrease of around 5 per cent compared to the same month a year before (investment volume in April 2023 was €3.9 billion).

While overall figures have decreased, several large funding rounds demonstrate the ability of scaleups to secure the funds necessary to build their customer base, further develop their product offerings, and extend their reach internationally.


Out of 320 deals in April (a decrease of approximately 5 per cent year over year), 10 companies raised €100 million or more (each) while 43 were undisclosed deals.
