Deals in Europe Online Data Service - Help

Welcome to the Tornado Insider Online Data Service!
The Online Data Service has the answers to your venture capital questions. Tornado Insiderís Data Service includes VC investment across Europe and Israel, providing a comprehensive database of high-tech companies receiving funding. The easy-to-navigate service allows you to search and sort by country, region, business activity, sector, funding round and deal size, providing you with contact information for the companies receiving investment.

The information on this page gives you some help on how to use the system. If you require any additional information please let us know by sending an email to

Search tips
  • Multiple values for each field can be included in your search by pressing the 'Ctrl' key when clicking on the values of choice.
  • In the Search Deals page, results can be presented in a "table view" which show all deal info on one line or in a "form view" which shows only the deal date of one deal per page.
  • In "table views" you can sort the search results by clicking on the column header.
  • Click on company and investor names to view their Radar profile. These contain additional business information on the companies.
  • Depending on the number of records you've selected you can navigate through the pages by using the "<< First", "< Previous", "Next>" and
    "Last >>" buttons on the left bottom of the page (table view) or on the right top of the page (form view).
  • Deals tracked may include non-disclosed amounts. These can be confidential figures possessed but not disclosed by Tornado Insider, and amounts that are not disclosed at all. For the latter group, Tornado Insider calculates an average, which is based on the mean investment size within the year, sector and round that an undisclosed deal has taken place. These averages are included in all calculations and resulting amounts within this service, but are not visible in the deal view. Consequently, adding up amounts of deal listings could provide different totals than those calculated by the module.
Export to Excel
When searching deals you can export the selected data to Excel. This can be done by clicking on the link Export data to Excel. The execution of this function depends on the settings in your browser and the type of browser you use. You have to have Microsoft Excel installed in your computer.

The link that is shown open's a file that has been created for this search action. Clicking on this link can open Excel directly or you'll get a message asking you to open or save the file. This file is only the link between Excel and the Online Deals database (it does not contain the actual data).

If you open this file (either directly in your browser or from you computer after you have saved it) it will open excel and show a message explain that Excel is retrieving data. The time it takes to retrieve the data from the database depends on the amount of data that has to be retrieved and the connection you have to the Internet.

When the data is retrieved all data will be shown in your Excel worksheet, which you can save locally.
