Our latest European Tech Exits and Funding report shows that a higher proportion of later-stage rounds made Q2 2017 the single best quarter on record for European and Israeli tech funding, and it was also another strong quarter for VC-backed company exits.
European and Israeli startups completed 783 funding rounds in Q2 2017, totalling a whopping €6.7 billion, or €2.1 billion more than the next highest quarter on record, Q1 2016.
Compared to Q1 2017, there was a 10.2% drop in the number of deals, but a 48.9% increase in investment volume. Investment volume jumped 59.5% from the same quarter last year.
Despite slow M&A activity overall, it was another strong quarter for VC-backed exits; the number of transactions involving VC-backed tech companies grew to 72 from 65 in Q1 2017, but the value of those transactions dropped from €16.2 billion in Q1 2017 to €6.3 billion in Q2 2017.
