High-Level Thoughts:
1. Big month for Revo Capital (congrats guys!) as Getir scored a mega-round from Tiger Global Management. Same for Stanislav Sirakov and the team LAUNCHub Ventures with a $30M for GTMhub.
2. In January we have seen more growth rounds than usual. Many Series As, Bs and Cs.
3. I saw more Polish funds invest in the region. Congrats to Movens Capital (Artur Banach), Corvus Ventures (Maciej Kowalczyk), SMOK Ventures (🌈 Borys Musielak).

So how is it going? Here is a snippet of the key data points for January 2021:
