Dutch startups raise €59 million in Q4 2015

Dutch startups so far didn’t make a final sprint to top last year’s total funding of half a billion euro. According to our quarterly overview, there were 34 deals for a total of 59 million euro in Q4. Nestpick and InteRNA Technologies got the most funding in the last quarter of 2015.

With Q4 added, the total money invested in Dutch startups is 428 million euro. That’s at least 72 million euro less then last year, when Dutch startups raised more than 500 million euro in 2014.

Because of larger deals in previous quarters, the fourth quarter’s average investment is way lower: 1.7 million euro – compared to €2.3M (Q1), €2.6M (Q2) and €4.3M (Q3).
Important note: these numbers are based on updated data from our total year overview.

The last quarter of 2015 also had the least amount of deals in comparison to previous quarters: 34 compared to 37 (Q1), 40 (Q2) and 43 (Q3).

The median investment size in Q4 is 1 million euro, higher than all previous quarters this year.

Data in this table is also based on our complete 2015 data.

Honorable mentions

As you know, we don’t include any form of subsidies. But the €10.2M grant from Bill Gates to In2Care to help fight malaria is hard to neglect as a positive stimulus for the startup.
