The year 2023 saw Europe’s largest ever tech IPO, a flurry of investment in AI startups and a trickle of later-stage rounds, signaling early signs of green shoots for Europe’s tech ecosystem. Even so, the value of venture capital deals in the first half of this year was down 60.8% from 2022, while exits have hit a decade low. But some investors have thrived in this turmoil, and the seventh annual Midas List Europe will highlight the 25 most successful.
Submissions for the Midas List Europe 2023, the definitive ranking of the continent’s top private tech investors, are now open through October 6. Produced in partnership with TrueBridge Capital Partners, the Midas List Europe is a data-driven list that evaluates hundreds of investors from across Europe, Israel, and the Middle East’s top venture firms.
With decades of experience and industry data, Midas and TrueBridge can ensure that data is input correctly and confidentially; portfolio performance shared in the Midas process is not published or shared.
Note: Investors that submitted for the Midas List, published each May, are encouraged to re-submit for Midas List Europe unless their portfolio activity remains unchanged.
Last year’s Midas List Europe saw Index Ventures’ Danny Rimer shoot to the top of the rankings thanks to Adobe’s $20 billion offer to acquire one of his early bets, Figma. With that deal stalled in antitrust arbitration, there will be challengers for the title of Europe’s top venture investor, and likely several new entrants adding to last year’s four breakthroughs.
