*NEW RESEARCH* Attracting funding in the UK market

The funding environment for early-stage companies in the UK is undeveloped in comparison to the US and some other countries. Despite the quality and quantity of developments in the UK, the market has historically been short of the capital required to exploit and drive the opportunities to full commercialisation. atr

This is changing, however, with more venture funding available through a greater number of funding vehicles. Despite recent political uncertainty in the UK, there is evidence of the venture capital market continuing to grow. The UK and Ireland attract most of the venture investment in Europe, with deal size growing as the investment ecosystem matures. Technology continues to attract a significant portion of this growing investment pot.

This is evidenced by data compiled by TechMarketView (see UK Tech Investment Patterns, also launched today), which makes clear that the UK/Ireland remains an attractive market.

But how do start-ups and other firms go about attracting this investment? Furthermore, how do they ensure they make the right decisions and don’t get caught out along the way?
