This Week in European Tech: IPO plans for Darktrace, EU wants to ban use of AI for surveillance, Facebook faces ‘mass action’ suit
This week, our research team tracked more than 85 tech funding deals worth more than €1.6 billion, and about 20 exits, M&A transactions, and rumours, and related news stories across Europe, including Russia, Israel, and Turkey. Recently, we also started publishing 'Today in European Tech', a daily round-up of deals and news stories that caught our attention. Today, instead of a daily round-up we give you an overview of the 10 biggest European tech news items for the past week (subscribe to our free newsletter to get this round-up in your inbox every Monday morning). Digital Rights Ireland (@DRIalerts) is commencing a mass action lawsuit against Facebook over the recent 530m+ leak. We are extremely proud to share that Lingoda has raised €57 million ($68 million) in growth equity!
