We’ve made it to episode 10! This week, we talk about Raspberry Pi racking up worldwide sales of 1.75 million, Partech Ventures investing $215 million in European startups the American way, and Wayra sharing numbers about its accelerators for the first time. This is the TechCrunch Europe Podcast, wherein we European writers discuss tech news, as well as what’s happening in our startup scene.

We invite you to enjoy our weekly podcast every Thursday.
