Europe the number of capital investments in Hungary growing at the fastest pace
The European startup market achieved records in terms of both the number and volume of investments in 2018, with the number of capital investments in Hungary growing at the fastest pace year-on-year proportionally, according to EYʼs Start-Up-Barometer.
In Hungary, 132 startup investment transactions took place, twice as many as the preceding year, a growth unmatched across the continent. The sharp increase means that Hungary is now in eighth place in Europe regarding the number of investments, ahead of Russia and Denmark. From the CEE region, only Hungary managed to crack the top ten.
The largest value of startup investments, EUR 7 bln, was registered in the United Kingdom, followed Germany (EUR 5 bln), and France (EUR 3.5 bln). ■
