#22 Martin Mignot | European tech: where are the giants?

Europe is a wonderful place, I think we can agree on that. I could spend all day listing reasons why, but then again this is just an episode description. However, some people are claiming that the jury is in regarding the state of European tech. Europe lost the race. Pack your bags. Martin Mignot, Partner at Index Ventures, begs to differ. He has worked with many rising European companies like Revolut, Deliveroo, and BlaBlaCar, and sees a bright future for European innovation. Listen to this episode to find out exactly what Martin means, and why.

Expect to learn:

Why does Martin think Europe is a great place for Founders?

What is happening in European tech in 2021 in terms of funding?

Where are the European tech giants?

How has the pandemic changed Martin’s future outlook regarding his work?
