What summer break? 10 European companies announced a collective $310m in funding just this week


All the information and data below can found in our weekly newsletter (sent every Friday afternoon) as well, but just to showcase that Europe doesn't come to a complete standstill in July-August: these are 10 sizeable funding rounds announced in the past week alone:

- European online auction house Catawiki (NL) raised $82 million in Series C funding

- Deliveroo (UK) closed a$70 million Series C round

- Secret Escapes (UK) secured $60 million in funding from Google Ventures and others

- Tictail (Sweden), Europe’s answer to Etsy and Shopify, secured $22 million in Series B funding

- iwoca, a fast-growing SME lending platform (UK), raised $20 million

- Rocket Internet's latest startup, Vaniday (Germany), raised $16.6 million

- Equity crowdfunding platform Seedrs (UK) raised a $15.6 million round

- Its rival, Crowdcube (UK), raised $9.4 million in funding

- Rocket Internet-backed GoButler (Germany) raised a $8 million round

- URBANARA (Germany) closed a $6 million round

That's five financing rounds for UK companies, three in Germany, one in Sweden and one in the Netherlands for a total of $310 million in capital raised just this week.

Not included in this list: a $100 million round for Sweden's Truecaller and a $50 million capital injection for Israeli-US company Outbrain - neither was confirmed to date.

If they'd been included the final tally would be $460 million.

Enjoy the weekend!
