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.

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.

But how do start-ups go about attracting this investment? Furthermore, how do they ensure they make the right decisions and get the right funding? This report explains all you need to know to get off to a successful start.
