Blockdata, a startup that maps the blockchain ecosystem by providing high-quality data on blockchain projects, has announced that it has raised €200,000 in an angel round. One of the undisclosed investors said its work was crucial, stating that “tracking and mapping the ecosystem is critical for investors to understand macro trends in blockchain and crypto.”


The logistics startup Brenger has secured €950,000 growth capital. The company connects delivery vehicles such as trucks, which are usually empty on their return route, with transport customers, saving money and CO2 in the process. 


Aiming to build an extensive European network of fast-charging stations for fully electric cars, Fastned has just raised over €11 million via the issue of bonds. Fastned already has a network of 78 stations operating in Netherlands and Germany, with another 15 currently under construction. Now, over the course of 2019 the company can expand, offering more stations and faster chargers in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and the UK. 


The startup ecosystem in this city never stands still. The first of the three Amsterdam-based startups to have secured investment is ZIVVER, the provider of a secure communications platform. ZIVVER, which offers a user-friendly solution to prevent data breaches and helps organisations comply with GDPR regulations and industry-specific standards, raised $12 million. The funding is led by Dawn Capital, with participation from DN Capital and an existing investor, henQ Capital Partners.
