The 300 investors have between them €15bn available to invest in European start-ups

Techstars Berlin has designed and created a beautiful European investor map that features more than 300 investors that are investing in European start-ups.

Techstars is a mentorship-driven start-up accelerator founded by David Cohen, Brad Feld, David Brown, and Jared Polis that holds 13-week programs for startups in Boulder, New York City, Boston, Seattle, San Antonio, Austin, Chicago and London.

Techstars invests around $118,000 per company via more than 20 accelerator programmes worldwide. Its global alumni network is 700-plus companies and it will graduate more than 200 companies in the next 12 months.

The map lists seed and venture capital players active across Europe, including in Austria, Belgium, Estonia, France, Germany, the UK and more.

300 European investors have €15bn to invest in start-ups


The list of investors currently totals some €15bn in funds, which are available for investment in European start-ups right now.

The map is a work in progress and the aim is to update the list in the coming months.

For example, for Ireland, it only lists Frontline Ventures, although there are two dozen or more venture funds also active in Ireland with millions of euros to invest. To get a handy list of active Irish venture capital investors, click here.
