When Covid19 (Mar’20) hit Europe and EU countries introduced lockdowns I started looking at round announcements in the CEE region. I was curious to see what will be the impact on the investment landscape when there is no travel and there are no startup events.
I decided to look at 10 CEE countries -> Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Slovenia. CEE can be probably defined in a number of ways. I picked those 10 countries as I visited all of them except Romania, which was on the list for 2020.
Those ten countries represent a vast region and are home to some of Europe’s greatest tech companies. By reviewing announced rounds I was hoping to learn more about interesting companies and investors who are active in the region. What was a single deep dive, turned into a monthly overview of the VC activity in the region.
