We have found a while ago that venture capital mega rounds (≥ $5om) in Germany are scarce, but not as scarce as we had thought.
We have now taken a look at mega rounds in FinTech:
– Mega rounds accelerated strongly in 2014
– US dominates with 2/3 share since 2011
– Europe with only 12% share since 2011
– Europe dominated by UK with 5 mega rounds in 2015
– German FinTech mega VC rounds are the new unicorns: Just one since 2012!
