even more money and foreign interest
Last year, Dutch startups raised at least 655 million euros in investment money. Companies in software, e-commerce and travel in particular have managed to attract attention. This and more is evident from an analysis of the investments made in 2017.
In the past year, at least 655 million euros was invested in Dutch startups. More than 200 million euros more than earlier figures for 2017 showed. And almost 400 million euros more than in the previous year. It appears from the dataset that StartupJuncture has compiled and has now been enriched by Thomas Mensink of Golden Egg Check. Among other things, he looked at the “hot topics” and most active venture capital funds (VC) in the country.
As in previous years, StartupJuncture has collected figures about Dutch startups, data that business analyst Mensink has enriched and explored. By adding some forgotten companies and omitting some names that have outgrown the start-up phase – for example, Takeaway.com, which also raised the money with an IPO – he arrives at 122 deals with an average value of 5.3 million euros. Picnic (100 million euros), Messagebird (52 million euros) and Xeltis (45 million euros) top the list.
