Top 15 financial investment deals for start-ups in the Netherlands in 2018

This statistic shows the top 15 of financial investment deals for start-ups in the Netherlands in 2018 (in million euros). In 2017, the Dutch start-up Bitfury received the biggest investment with a value of 70 million euros. A start-up is usually defined as a starting (group of) entrepreneur(s), but there are many different definitions of what makes a start-up a start-up. In most of these, the similarities include the age of the entrepreneur or company, the number of employees, the growth potential and level of innovation. Despite this, the average size of an investment deal for start-ups in the Netherlands increased from approximately 2.3 million euros in the first quarter of 2015 to approximately 3.4 million euros in the third quarter of 2016.

Some of the investment deals for start-ups in the Netherlands include the use of crowdfunding. Between 2012 and 2016, the total value of crowdfunding investments in the Netherlands increased from 14 million euros in 2012 to a value of approximately 170 million euros in 2016. Whilst investments and the familiarity of these investments have increased, though, so have the warnings from the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) on the risks involved in crowdfunding.
