European startups starting to make waves

Reading Time: 1 minute

Europe has quickly and quietly become an ideal destination for venture capital firms hoping to back a new breed of entrepreneurs in the tech industry.  London has especially become a destination as investors become more willing to scout talent in developing tech cities.  London has the advantage of a large, multi-national, English-speaking workforce with a developed education and infrastructure system.

Skype, Angry Birds, and TweetDeck are all examples of successful European startups, so investors are eagerly seeking more in the region.  European startups are cheaper than their American counterparts to set up and operate, and grew an average of 20% in the first quarter of 2011.  The British, French, and German governments have also recently stepped up efforts to attract entrepreneurial talent to their countries and increase their technological presences.
