Germany’s tech scene saw increased funding figures for its tech hub, Berlin, increased foreign VC participation, and one of its most notable investors go public in 2014. With this increased buzz and VC dollars, 15 VC-backed tech companies raised $20M+ rounds of financing this past year. The largest was Delivery Hero, the online food ordering site which closed three separate rounds of financing totaling over $450M, including a $350M Series G which valued the company at $1B. The 15 largest deals cumulatively raised just under $982M in 2014, more than all of Berlin tech startups raised in 2013.
