Daniel Waterhouse offers the Balderton partnership's perspective on Liquidity I
Since I started working in the tech sector in 1999, the startup and venture capital market in Europe is unrecognisable today from what it was then. After the financial meltdown of 2008/9, the European tech ecosystem has undergone dramatic growth. The amount of venture capital invested into technology companies has grown from $1.9B in 2008 to $17.1B in 2017, with twelve thousand startups financed and a slew of major successful exits. Europe has become a tech-startup region to be reckoned with.
