Q2 2022 | The state of the market for series B&C rounds in European tech companies

Welcome to the latest edition of the Silverpeak B&C Rounds report – a review of Series B&C investment rounds into European technology companies. The dataset covers total capital invested, average deal sizes, frequent investors, investments by country, among other statistics. The aim of this report is to provide readers with a good understanding of the fundraising environment for technology companies in Europe.

Report highlights

  • €13.4bn was invested in European Tech Series B&C rounds in H1 2022, remaining on par with 2021 highs despite the current global recession
  • Total Series B investment continued to increase for the 7th consecutive half year, while Series C has continued to decline since peaking in H1 2021
  • The UK continues to attract the most Series B&C investment of any country in Europe. The €4.8bn invested in the UK surpasses the next two countries combined: Germany (€2.7bn) and France (€1.7bn)
