From Spotify to Monitise: Charting the success of Europe's burgeoning tech scaleups


Data on the European tech startup scene is patchy at best, making it difficult for policy-makers, journalists and researchers to draw conclusions.

However, a new studyconducted by Pedal Consulting and Ud’Anet in the framework of the “Startup Europe Partnership” (SEP), aims to address this issue by mapping the most relevant elements related to the European startup ecosystem and capture its coherent and comprehensive picture. 

“Startups and scaleups need to be put at the centre of EU policies but we need comparable data at European level to identify and fine-tune concrete actions and strategies," said Alberto Onetti, coordinator of the Startup Europe Partnership. 

The results presented today are based on an interim analysis, and thus only provide preliminary insights and observations derived from a representative sample of over 1,000 ICT startups and 200 M&A transactions.

The final report is expected to be released at in the first quarter of 2015.
