Techstars has released the digital version of their Investors in Europe map, which is quite helpful to understand which VCs have invested so far in European startups.
The digital map, which came to life in the digital format through the support Dealroom, offers useful European Investor information that should definitely help entrepreneurs who’re looking for VCs who invest in Europe.
If you’re a startup located in Eastern Europe and looking for investors around the region or in Western Europe, this should be very helpful to you, especially because it includes all the top resources founders need. You’ll see names active in the region like Launchub, NEVEQ, Eleven, Empower Capital from Bulgaria or South Central Ventures from Croatia.
However, this doesn’t mean that these are the only active investment funds in the region. There’s a number of European VC funds and US funds that are active in the region looking for the next success story.
