This may be a surprise to those who read the mainstream news for their economic news, but not to those who work in technology, especially Cleantech as we do at Hyperion Executive Search. We saw this week that BNEF reported that Global investment in the energy and mobility transition hit over $503 Billion last year. So this detailed view of the broader tech VC market in Europe was pleasing, though not surprising.
At Hyperion we've worked with some of the most innovative post-investment start-ups and their VCs to build extraordinary teams. If you're building a team, or want to move forward your cleantech career with exceptional and well-funded cleantech companies, get in touch with one of the team.
Oh, and if you happen to be an outstanding and ethical recruiter we're building our teams in Germany, UK and the US to help us fulfill this demand. Get in touch with me.
All in all, the story of venture investment in Europe over the last decade is one of massive growth: Funding to the continent at the start of the most recent decade totaled $6.5 billion, per Crunchbase data. By the close of the decade, that number had grown more than sixfold to $40 billion with eight countries each raising more than $1 billion in 2020.
