10 things you didn't know about Europe's tech scene | VentureBeat | Business | by Omar Mohout
So while Europe might be a single market, it’s definitely not a single tech scene. That fact makes it difficult to feel the pulse of the European tech. But if you take a close look, you’ll quickly notice that there is interesting stuff happening in Europe – to the point that we’re spotting young EUnicorns, the European answer to Silicon Valley’s unicorns! In order to get a good overview of the scene,, the non-profit I work for that maps Belgian tech startups, recently looked at all of the European tech companies that have raised at least $1 million in 2016. The data (you can view it here), which is comprised of more than 1,100 transactions from 30 countries, reveals 10 surprising insights. Here they are — the good, the bad, and the ugly of the old continent:

Dublin Facing Another Housing Bubble? |
In a recent column in the Sunday Independent, Ireland's largest weekend newspaper, one of Ireland's leading economists, Colm McCarthy of University College (Dublin) raised the prospect another housing bubble in Dublin, Ireland's leading weekend newspaper. Dublin is the nation's capital and home to approximately 40% of the population. This is a potentially serious concern, given the economic devastation that the previous Dublin housing bubble contributed to across Ireland during 2006-2010.

Housing Affordability in China |
Finally, there is credible housing affordability data from China. For years, analysts have produced "back of the envelope" anecdotal calculations that have been often as inconsistent as they have been wrong. The Economist has compiled an index of housing affordability in 40 cities, which uses an "average multiple" (average house price divided by average household income) (China Index of Housing Affordability). This is in contrast to the "median multiple," which is the median house price divided by the median household income (used in the Demographia International Housing Affordability Survey and other affordability indexes). The Demographia Survey rates affordability in 9 geographies, including Hong Kong (a special administrative region of China). The average multiple for a metropolitan market is generally similar to the median multiple.

Dylan Collins: The Twin Cities of Dublin and London - The Accelerators - WSJ
A side-by-side comparison of London and Dublin is utterly pointless as the former is about eight times the size of the latter. But there’s certainly a few worthwhile observations to be made. And both are a useful proxy general startup activity across Europe.
