Prominence rank

Explore Dealroom's annual rankings of Europe's most prominent venture capital investors.

Every year Dealroom releases a quantitative ranking of Europe’s most prominent venture capital investors. The VC prominence rank is intended to be a practical ranking, to be used in everyday situations, such as:

  • A founder looking for capital
  • An investor looking for co-investors
  • A corporate M&A team looking for VC portfolios to explore
  • An LP exploring and comparing different funds
  • A person looking to land a job in VC, or expand their network

Navigate to the Prominence Rank tab on the side menu and here you'll find the 2021, 2020, and 2019 rankings. To view the ranking, click on the Prominence rank dropdown and select the ranking of your choice or choose one of the suggested searches at the top of the page.

The prominence rank can be filtered by geography, sector experience, number of rounds, deal value and more. You can further refine the data by applying filters through the Advanced filters button on the right, next to the filtering bar.
