Largest VC exits in Europe 2018 This statistic illustrates the largest venture capital exits in Europe in 2018, by exit company. In 2018, Spotify led the largest venture capital exits through a 7.5 billion direct listing of existing shares of the company at the New York Stock Exchange. The second largest exit was valued at 6.2 billion euros through an initial public offering at the Euronext Amsterdam exchange. Over the past years, a large number of venture capital deals involved the FinTech industry. What could be considered surprising for 2017 was that although Europe's biggest did involve a FinTech company it was in fact the only one in the in the top ten. As for venture backed industries taking exits health companies lead the way with three of the largest VC backed exits in 2017. In 2017 a total of 12 VC backed unicorns made exits, a decrease from the previous year.
