This is an excellent set of data from Dealroom.co analysing how European tech investment performed last year. Total investment grew 12% to €16bn. A pullback in the UK and Germany was compensated by a strong performance in France, Sweden and Israel. 

Corporate investment rounds grew 33% to €4.9bn. We are seeing a much greater appetite from corporates to both invest in and acquire innovative tech companies to respond to the threat from new technologies to existing businesses. 

A 10x increase in deep tech investing over the last 5 years to €2bn makes me hopeful for the future of European tech.
