Mentorship-driven start-up accelerator TechStars has produced an investor map of Europe that counts 541 venture capitalists across the continent and some €23.8bn invested in European start-ups in the last two years.

The map, a valuable resource for any entrepreneur or investor, allows users to drill down into the number of venture capitalists who are active per city. There is also a very handy Google spreadsheet that can be accessed here.

With the help of data from Dealroom, the map identifies €23.8bn that was invested in European start-ups since 2014 from early-stage investments to later-stage growth funds.
