Europe is finally warming up to the American-style, risk big and risk early venture investment culture that has given birth to so many tech megabrands out of Silicon Valley.
Today we are launching the latest report in our Skift Research Reports service, European Venture Investment Trends in the Travel Industry.
This report highlights recent and historical funding trends in Europe’s turbulent travel technology startup scene. Despite an uncertain geopolitical and economic climate, the travel industry in Europe continues to attract new funding rounds with some successful exits. The recent acquisitions of Skyscanner by Ctrip Holdings and Momondo Group by Priceline highlighted an appetite on behalf of global players for European travel tech brands.
This premium report also comes with a downloadable data sheet (Excel file) featuring all travel tech funding rounds in Europe between 2010 to 2016. The data includes publicly announced rounds including angel, seed, and series rounds. Base data included for each funding round include: city, country, total amount in U.S. dollars, and year of funding. The sheet also includes a list of the 100 most funded travel startups in Europe founded after 2000. The total funding data column in the top 100 tab includes all types of funding the company has received, including loans, and government grants.
On Brexit: The United Kingdom’s decision to leave the EU was an unexpected result for many. The potential impact on the economy had been a topic of debate ever since David Cameron announced that he would let the public vote on the decision. Many experts, among them the government itself, predicted that leaving the European Union would have a strong and immediate negative impact on the British economy. While the pound “crashed” as the results were announced, in the months following the vote, UK stock markets have risen and the current state of the economy seems to be growing.
