Join our webinar this Friday

Despite some VCs saying they are open for business, it is becoming more clear every day that the market has taken a dramatic turn. Rumours are swirling about investors pulling term sheets and slashing valuations last minute.

Dealroom data shows that funding rounds have plummeted by 22% over the past two weeks — and that's likely still a lagging indicator, as those deals were already long under way. What's really going on?

Sifted in partnership with Dealroom, will be grilling a panel of investors from around Europe to get the inside story this Friday, April 3rd at 13:00 CET / 12:00 London.
