Hardly a week goes by without another of the major European fintechs announcing a new round of financing. The donors regularly add large amounts of millions. If you only look at the headlines in the specialist publications, the deals paint a healthy picture of the industry, which continues to be generously provided with capital despite the corona crisis.
But how did the scene really develop? This is now shown by an analysis of the 30 largest European fintech deals from the first half of 2020, which the French fintech venture capitalist BlackFin Tech created for Finance Forward.
One thing is clear: Fintechs generally get through the year of the corona crisis better than start-ups in many other industries. Some of the established players with a functioning business model have even been able to benefit from the circumstances in recent months. The financing rounds of the first six months of the year paint a similar picture.
The complete list of deals for European fintechs – and how they can be classified into the turbulent year, you can read today on Finance Forward, the new finance portal from Personal-Financial.com and OMR. You can register for the daily newsletter here.
