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!
