State of European Tech 2020
Published by Atomico in partnership with Orrick and Slush and with support from Silicon Valley Bank, this year’s Report analyzes input from more 3,000 founders, investors and visionaries. It also highlights the factors that will shape the future of European tech: the evolving funding and exit landscapes and the imperative to develop a more diverse, equitable and purpose-driven ecosystem.
In an effort to get a pulse of the actual impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the startup ecosystem, we sent out a survey In October and received 338 responses from founders around the globe. Based on this survey and a previous piece of Slush research from May, we put together this research report in collaboration with our partners, City of Helsinki and NGP Capital to share some insights on the past, present and future impact of this crisis through the lens of startup founders and entrepreneurs.
As the world is going through turmoil, the time is ripe for some introspection. Now more than ever, the world needs founders; people who embrace uncertainty, see patterns in chaos and fearlessly build technologies that take humankind forward. To maximize the depth and scale of these technologies, we need to address the shortfalls of the last decade. In short, we need to redefine entrepreneurship.
We have joined forces with the European startup ecosystem to redefine entrepreneurship. In our whitepaper, we lay out how startups of the 2020s will look different from those of the decade gone by.
