  1. 1. Venture Capital in Europe & Israel Venture Investment Data: 2015-2018 Amsterdam is home to 165 canals totaling over 100 kilometers in length. The city has over 1281 bridges, over three times as many as Venice. © Angular Ventures 2018 In compliance with applicable UK regulations, Angular Ventures is an Appointed Representative of Sapia Partners LLP (550103), a firm authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
  2. 2. Angular is a specialist venture capital firm, built to back a very specific type of company: • Enterprise-oriented. If your business requires consumer adoption, it's not for us. We back companies that sell products and services to other companies. • Deep technology. We are firm believers in the value of meaningful barriers to entry, and we know there are a lot of ways to define and construct those barriers. • Born in Europe or Israel. We know that great innovation can come from anywhere. Our focus is on companies born on the "right" side of the Atlantic, specifically in Europe or Israel. • Global ambition. While it's possible to build a great business without targeting a global opportunity, we are exclusively focused on companies that are chasing a truly global opportunity. In most cases, this means a focus on US market entry from day one. • Outstanding founding teams with domain expertise. We believe that great founders are the main driver of success for any entrepreneurial venture. We like "well-rounded" founders, but tend to prefer founders that are "angular," bringing unique technical or domain expertise to bear. • Early stage. We like to be very early. We are not religious about being first, but most of our investments are into companies that have raised less than $1M before we engage. 2Subscribe to the Angular Ventures weekly New Investments in 2018:
  3. 3. Notes & Thank You • The data in this report consists entirely of data I’ve gathered manually based on publicly available, free sources • No paid data sources or API calls were harmed in the making of this dataset, every investment was manually classified • This allows analysis of some aspects of the data I consider important – aspects that don’t appear in other data sources. More importantly, it allows me to exclude deals that are really not “venture capital” rounds but tend to get included by others • Seed investment is under-reported and adds a lot of noise to the data set, so I exclude deals under $500K • The analysis is limited to ICT categories and excludes life sciences • The analysis excludes Turkey and FSU countries • All currencies converted into USD using monthly average exchange rates • ICOs included on a selective basis; crypto companies are classified into verticals by their end value proposition About this data: A special thank you to Andrew Poesaste (@poetential) for help with data gathering. He’s looking for a full-time VC gig in London and he’s awesome. 3Subscribe to the Angular Ventures weekly
