*NEW RESEARCH* UK and Irish Tech funding hits new high

chartQ2 2019 was the biggest ever quarter for venture investment in UK and Irish privately-held tech companies, according to latest data from corporate finance firm Ascendant. Just over £2.3b was invested in a total of 301 deals of over £500k in the quarter, up 27% by value and 7% by deal flow. Amazon’s $575m/£447m investment in Deliveroo in May comprised almost 20% of the total (see Amazon Primes Deliveroo). Indeed, the ten biggest deals represented almost half the total funds invested. Half the deals were less than £2m and received just 5% of the total money.

The latest edition of IndustryViews Venture Capital has more detail, along with over 40 pages of UK tech venture funding deals.
