SEP MONITOR – May 2014 Mapping European “Scaleups”

The Startup Europe Partnership mapping & scouting database focuses on “scaleups” — European startups that have been able to break the “early-stage barrier” and are a candidate to become large global companies and real job creators.

Over one thousand European startups raised more than $1M funding in the last three years. The vast majority are based in UK (26%), followed by Germany (16%) and France (11%). From 2010 the number of scaleups have increased all over Europe, thanks to a stronger presence of European venture capital and early stage funds.

SEP Monitor is based on ongoing online resource and data mining; results and findings are preliminary.
