Did you know that 60% of VC funds in Europe are backed by the European Investment Bank's venture arm, EIF? Neither did we, and that's exactly why you should tune in to this podcast episode. In this fact-packed discussion, EIB’s Chief Economist Debora Revoltella and Head of Growth Capital and Innovation Finance Division Hristo Stoykov help us see the big picture of the European startup scene.

What challenges will the European startup economy face next? Where is the EU directing our VC funds and growth companies? How does EIB use venture debt to help later-stage startups to scale, and what other gear does it have in its versatile funding toolbox for growth companies? Once you listen, you'll be surprised you didn't know this before.
