European tech scaleups report 2017

10,912 views

Published on

2017 was another great year for the European scaleup ecosystem. While the number of investment was similar to 2016, investment amount went 18% higher.
2017 was the year of ICOs – a new way for promising technology and business models to get funded. It came with a number of challenges -such as scams- but one country framed the ICO opportunity: Switzerland.
With this report we want to provide a comprehensive review of investment in startups and high-growth technology companies across 31 countries in Europe. Our aim is to provide data-driven guidance, insights and inspiration to stakeholders in the European scaleup ecosystem.

On the other hand, Gaming, that wasn’t in the top 10 during 2016 is in position 8 in 2017. Not surprising given that there have been 10 Gaming IPOs in 2017, compared to only 2 in 2016. 9 out of the 10 gaming IPOs are in the Nordics. On the losers side, the market for online marketing solutions dramatically shrunk with 29%. Yet, it’s still a significant segment with a #3 position in the industry.

On the losers side, French Blablacar shredded 22% of its workforce in the last year. Tapp Commerce went bankrupt and Yubl is been acquired explaining their drop in workforce.

It looks like a surprising low number but remember, these are companies that raised at least € 750K in funding providing often a runway of longer than 12 months. The majority of bankrupt companies are in the FinTech industry. That can be explain by the fact that it is the most funded industry but also it’s heavy regulated and customers not trusting their money to startups. Wealthify is acquired by Aviva as is KNC Miner by an unknow buyer and Garantibil by Volvo. Swedish Boenke shows how difficult it is to monetize data

The ICO friendly framework of the country makes an impact in attracting scaleups. The small Belgian city of Tessenderlo is the HQ of X-Fab, hence the high ranking.

While it’s true that spin-offs are not the only way that universities can monetize research, it’s nevertheless an indication that innovation is mainly happening outside campuses and labs. However, universities do play a role in patentable hard tech in specific areas such as Medtech, BioTech Life Sciences, encryption, materials science, robotics, nanotechnology, semiconductors, and the like.

  52. 52. 52 2017 EUROPEAN SCALE UP REPORT EUROPEAN VENTURE CAPITAL Europe saw 37 IPOs of technology companies in 2017 totaling € 2.2B. That’s 42% more than 2016, once again thanks to one single country: Sweden. Apparently, going public in Sweden is as simple as crowdfunding. The Nasdaq First North Stockholm, Aktietorget and the Nordic Growth Market manage to facilitate IPOs at a low cost allowing startups to raise a series A and even seed round. Not a single European scaleup went public in Wall Street in 2017, compared to 2 in 2016. Euronext is working hard to create awareness of the IPO path to capital with its TechShare program for scaleups. IPO PER COUNTRY 2017 1. Sweden (17) 2. Finland (5) 3. UK (3) 4. Germany (3) 5.

  55. 55. 55 2017 EUROPEAN SCALE UP REPORT EUROPEAN VENTURE CAPITAL 2017 is the year of the Initial Coin Offering (ICO). At least 24 investments totaling for € 863M. Switzerland is leading with half of all European ICOs. The city of Zug became the capital of ICOs in Europa both in number of deals as in capital raised. Despite the fact that Switzerland has a legal framework for ICO, it could not avoid scams such the Magos AI case. On the other hand, Swiss ICOs in 2016 (Lisk, Lykke) are alive and kicking. Lykke even raised again money using an ICO in 2017. Often, the ICO process is been supported by Bitcoin Suisse, a crypto financial broker based in Zug. ICO PER COUNTRY 2017 1. Switzerland (12) 2.

  56. 56. 56 2017 EUROPEAN SCALE UP REPORT EUROPEAN VENTURE CAPITAL Not surprising, ICOs are popular with companies using blockchain technologies. Over 90% of ICOs are blockchain companies. It indicates that there is room for growth and we only see the beginning of a new path to capital. Especially with the lack of specialized blockchain funds in Europe such as Blockchain Capital (SF) and Digital Currency Group (NYC). The majority of companies are active in FinTech but this is expected to broaden over the years to come. FinTech scaleup The Naga Group raised more in an ICO (€ 42M) than in an IPO (€ 2M).

  62. 62. 62 Companies includes web, app, mobile, digital products and services, software, marketplace, connected hardware, data-driven and HardTech companies. Companies that have their HQ or launched in Europe are considered. LifeScience and BioTech (except software solutions targeting this industry), non digital CleanTech (such as solar panel producers etc), eCommerce (such as Hallofresh, Zalando etc), research institutes and consultancy companies are excluded. We encourage you to review the methodology to better understand the numbers presented in this report. 2017 EUROPEAN SCALE UP REPORT METHODOLOGY Scaleups, not startups, are generating added value, create jobs, expand international and create economic value for stakeholders and society. This group is attracting the lion share of (venture) capital, in some countries of up to 90% of all capital. In other words, we use the Pareto distribution rule to create an accurate view on the venturing landscape. Only deals of at least $1M / € 750K are considered. We use a data-driven approach to track financing activity for European tech companies.
  63. 63. 63 Deals with a non-disclosed value or lacking value indication are not counted. If an amount is described as a seven-figure number, the lowest possible value has been counted. Funding is registered based on announcement date. All currencies (USD, GBP, CHF, SEK etc) are converted to Euro using aonda.com. The number of employees is captured on the moment of fund raising and based on the press release, LinkedIn, Xing, Viadeo or the company’s website. The founding year and location is based on information in press releases, company website, Crunchbase, LinkedIn or Xing. If deal information is being detected or corrected after closing the month, quarter or year, it will be included in future reports. Funding of both private and public companies are considered. Debt financing, IPOs, media for equity, crowdfunding, Initial Coin Offering, private placements, post IPO equity, private equity, grants and convertible loans are included. 2017 EUROPEAN SCALE UP REPORT METHODOLOGY
