TechCrunch recently published some research on ‘The Data Revolution’ that attempts to understand the ‘datafication’ of Europe’s economy.

The research, conducted by European Tech VC Serena Capital, involved the analysis of 3,000 funding rounds from tech companies in the EU over the past two years. From this data, they identified 130 ‘European Data Champions’, including GrowthIntel.

By studying each of these companies, Serena Capital were able to identify:

  • VC investment in data startups across geographies and sectors
  • The level of data disruption across both digital and traditional industries
  • A new human perception paradigm and the beginning of perception by machines
