Yeah, this round of funding is huger than huge. Well, at least for Europe. And while it may be nowhere near Groupon's, like, billion-dollar-round, it is definitely amongst the bigger deals on this side of the Atlantic.Multiple sources have confirmed that they are currently in discussion with Luxemburg-based Wikio Groupe, who is in the process of securing a very large round of funding. While no official information has been released, the 8-figure number could easily hit 9-figures in USD given the current exchange rate. That would make it one of the biggest rounds of funding to take place in Europe this year.
