The secret sauce of our insights

Aka, how do we do it.

Great Increase in InterestThe data gathered from our pool of over 300,000 emerging tech companies provides valuable insights, and can help predict future trends and support a better understanding of the market.This investment graph is rather fascinating. The increase in deals has been an ongoing trend throughout the decade. However, it wasn’t until 2018 that investment skyrocketed. During that time, companies started really getting onboard with such platforms.In 2018 a majority of companies were using PM softwares. According to a 2019 study (Statista), 83% of respondents worldwide had one or more project management offices in their organisation. 26% of these were less than two years old. That’s a massive growth in global usage.While the investment seems to be declining post 2018, the interest in these tools will definitely keep on increasing in the 2020s.20406080100120140Investment in project management toolsby companies operating in Europe 1252010201120122013201420152016201720182019H1/2020Investments and deals in project management tools in Europe since 2010€740M134€1.2B114€209.5M132€190.4M87€226.1M73€72.5M56€29.8M30€38.9M16€6.1M2€0.1M86€420.5MDeal countCapital invested€200M€400M€600M€800M€1B€1.2BInvestment ActivitiesTop technologies used in consumer finance Total amount invested in fintech - consumer finance in Europe & the North America since 2010.1B0B2B3B4B5B6B€7B8BCybersecurityIndustrialsReal estate technologyInsurtechMortgage techMobileSaaSCryptocurrency/blockchainBig DataAI & machine learningInvested amount€7.4B€0.1B€0.2B€0.2B€0.1B€1.3B€0.7B€1.8B€2B€7.2BTo gain an even better understanding of consumer finance, we broke down the technologies used within the industry.
