170+ European web3 VC funds
We gathered data from 170+ European web3 VC funds using their websites and Crunchbase profiles. We qualified the funds using the following fields:
Fund type: Is the fund web3 native, is it a web2 fund investing in web3, or is it a web3 company’s venture arm?
Investment stage: Does it mainly invest in early stages (pre-seed, seed), across stages, or only in later stages (Series A & above)?
Vertical: Infrastructure, Exchanges, DeFi, NFT, DAO, Gaming
Web3 investments: The number of web3 companies they’ve invested in
Lead ratio: The percentage of investments where the fund led the round
Investments include: 3 examples of companies they’ve invested in
You can find the full list of funds here. Feel free to download the CSV for your use.
From this comprehensive list, we decided to do a visual mapping.
The mapping is based on two factors:
Is the fund investing early-stage or across stages? We removed the late-stage-only funds because there weren’t many of them. Plus, web3 is a relatively young industry where early-stage capital is needed more than growth capital.
What is the fund type (Web3 native, Web2 OGs, Institutional)?
Assessing the performance of the funds was impossible due to a lack of data. For the mapping, we decided to select the most active ones per category (# of web3 investments).
