Hinweis der Redaktion

  • Welcome everyone to the Investors’ Forum.

    How are you feeling?

    I am feeling great because as a Venture guy you don’t often get to stand up at this conference, but I am glad to see that more and more of my Venture colleagues are here today.

    I could spend a ton of time telling you about PE and buyouts but I am a Venture Capitalist and that would bore you to death.

    I could also talk about Brexit and that would make you cry 

    I could also talk about the England, German and Italy performances in the World cup but that could also make you cry 

    So instead I am going to talk about is the renaissance of VC in Europe.
  • As you can see, Venture Capital is setting new records with € 11 billion raised by European VCs in 2018 and €7.2 billion invested in European start-ups (highest level ever recorded).

    2018 was also the best year ever in terms of exits of VC-backed companies with €48 billion returned to investors.

    Not only is this creating great value for the founding entrepreneurs and investors, it is also making a big impact into the Economies where these companies were created in terms of jobs and GDP. Just look at Berlin today vs. where it was 10 years ago.
  • The investors in Venture Capital Funds are happy too.

    Look at these returns

    EIF is also happy
  • Let’s talk about Unicorns. A Unicorn is a company valued at over $1bn.

    In 2005 we had 1 Unicorn company in Europe.

    Today we have 61.

    This is significant.

    Why? Because without these fund returning companies it is hard to make the Venture Capital model work.
  • So we all like unicorns

    (Aren’t they pretty?)

    As Venture Capitalists we need them and here is why: for example if you take a €200M fund and assume a 10% ownership on all exits , you will need €6bn of market cap in order to get a 3x return.

    Of course if you have an average ownership of 20% on exits you will only need a €3bn of market cap. However you still need €3bn! This is not insignificant.

    If you have a €500M fund you need €15bn. Think about that…

    Hence, without Unicorns in your portfolio the model is not going to work.
  • But actually in reality for us Venture Capitalists it’s all about Dragons.
  • One of my favourite movies

    (Bruce Lee)
  • What is a dragon?
    Dragons are successful investments that return at least 1x the VC’s fund.

    Here are some European tech dragons:
    Spotify, a Swedish digital music company, went public last year at a valuation of nearly $30 billion. The early stage investors made over 5x their funds.
    European payments platform Adyen floated at $8 billion which resulted in fantastic returns for Index Ventures (2-3x the fund)
    Auto 1, a company that for which we led the Series A, last year raised €450mn from Softbank at a €2.9bn valuation. That is about a 2x fund value

    These are the type of returns that traditionally only VCs from Silicon Valley have achieved.
    Today European Venture performance has reached world-class levels.

    With 40% - 50% loss rates on early stage investments, Venture Capitalists need dragons to make the model work.
  • Just taking a little step back let’s look where we have came from in the European Venture Ecosystem since I have been in the industry:
    Prior to 2000 VC in Europe was guys in white coats and accountants
    Starting in year 2000, that is when Accel and Benchmark first arrived in Europe and also when Index launched its first institutional fund
    Then we had the Skype exit – the first $1billion Venture-backed exit in Europe
    Which then led to the following exits: Zalando, Just Eat, Delivery Hero… all exits of over €5 billion each. This was unprecedented.
    In 2018, we took things to a new level with Spotify going public at a valuation of nearly $30 billion, Adyen IPO at nearly $8 billion and Farfetch IPO on the NY stock exchange at over $5 billion.

    These global category winning companies have put Europe on the map for Venture Capital on a global basis.
  • I think these four factors are the key drivers of the current success of the European ecosystem:
    The emergence of serial entrepreneurs
    Supported by experienced Seed and Series A funding and growth capital
    Major events nurturing the ecosystem, like the Investors’ Forum
    All leading to the creation of a new generation of successful entrepreneurs

    Let’s look at each of these points

  • Serial entrepreneurs are very important! In Silicon Valley it is not uncommon for the best funds to continue to back the same groups in various companies.

    Serial entrepreneurs also often go and create some of the best companies. If you look at the original Paypal founders, one of the best funding team ever, they went off to create Linkedin, Tesla, Facebook and Youtube.

    These six European serial entrepreneurs above have created some of the best companies in Europe

    And more importantly have come back to create new companies as well as start funds – putting new capital and knowledge into the system
  • Unlike 2000, Europe today also has a deep bench of experienced and successful Venture Capitalists.

    Many firms are on their fourth or fifth Fund, showing a deep track record and experience base.

    Just like plants need light, water and soil,
    Startups need ideas, execution and capital. In fact, a lot of capital. The average Unicorn raised over €250 million during their life.


    There are a few special investors that I want to mention now…
  • Pär-Jörgen Pärson from Northzone who will speak tomorrow

    Par has made 4 unicorns investments - Spotify, Avito, iZettle and TrustPilot - generating over €1 billion in profits to LPs

    He should stand in the European Venture Hall of fame and we all salute him. If you see him around pat him on the back.

    And by the way he plays guitar like Jimmy Page. So very multi talented. And looking forward to see him on skis this weekend.
  • And of course the King Neil Rimer.

    Index, as a firm, has invested in more unicorns than any firm in Europe. They are also considered now in the top 5 VC firms globally.

    Of course, we need a challenger and I am sure there is one in the room 
  • Last but not least we have a thriving next generation of entrepreneurs in Europe

    Things are moving fast, in fact very fast.
    Going from 0 to €1 billion of market cap has never been faster (5 years on average)

    The great thing about European Champions is that they can come from anywhere

    UI Path comes from Romania,
    Auto 1 from Berlin
    N26 from Berlin
    Revolut from London with a Russian founder

    And as I mentioned, European champions can come from anywhere…

  • Even small European countries can create Global Champions
  • So lets keep winning and suporting Venture Capital in Europe
  • Thank you
