Calling all VCs to provide feedback on Europe's Most Prominent Venture Capital Investors, 2020 edition

Long overdue, we're excited to launch the third edition of Europe's Most Prominent Venture Capital Investors. The preliminary results are as follows:

Top Seed investors:
#1: Rocket/GFC
#2: LocalGlobe
#3: Seedcamp
#4: Point Nine Capital
#5: Hoxton Ventures

Top Series A investors:
#1: Index Ventures
#2: Accel Partners
#3: HV Ventures
#4: Idinvest
#5: Lakestar

The final ranking will be announced in early 2020. Until then, we'll collect your feedback and data. In order to create the most accurate reflection of today's venture capital landscape, we've made some significant changes to the methodology.

Firstly, we've split the ranking into Seed and Series A investors. Late stage VCs are removed from this ranking, for now. A combined ranking will follow later in 2020 (we're still working out a robust method to compare early vs. late stage investments).

Secondly, we are putting more weight on unicorn investments. Realised and unrealised unicorns are weighted equally (why: unrealised is unproven but more recent). Investors without any unicorns are ranked based on future unicorns (valued $250M-$1B) and by number of investments in the last 12 months.
