France leading Europe for startup funding in 2016
A report by European tech industry news website Tech.eu announced the number of investments in European startups so far in 2016.
The results were outstanding in France, which saw 97 investments in January and February, up from 14 during the same period last year, storming ahead of its main rivals, the United Kingdom (86 investments) and Germany (69).
While the number of investments alone may be impressive, France also boasted the highest growth compared with 2015. The 97 investments themselves amounted to €371 million in all, over just two months.
