Survey and opinion formers
7 SLUSH & ATOMICO | The State of European Tech
When it comes to the state of European tech, facts and ﬁgures can only get you so far. They can help
you identify how much is being raised and where the investments are going but they cannot help you
analyse how people are feeling, how conﬁdent they are and whether their mindsets have changed.
These are all important questions and so we decided to supplement our fact-ﬁnding analysis with a
survey of entrepreneurs, investors and other tech stakeholders. In October 2015, we sent out the
survey to people in our European network and received over 800 responses from people with a direct
interest in European tech. We have incorporated the ﬁndings into this report. See Appendix for more
To provide additional context we also interviewed some of Europe’s leading entrepreneurs and
investors and you will ﬁnd their insights throughout.
