Check out CB Insights Q2 Funding Trends report here.


Market watcher CB Insights has released its latest report on the European investment scene and France is continuing to build momentum. In fact, with more than 355 deals representing more than $2B and counting so far in 2017 (more than any other company in Europe besides the UK), France is on track to outpace its 2016 deal volume by 40 percent. The country continues to position itself as startup nation, with more than 60 percent of deal share going to early stage companies. Fueled by the Q2 opening of Station F and the expansion of an already burgeoning incubator and accelerator ecosystem, we can expect even more interest in France, which is now second only to the UK in total tech investment activity.
