The UK has seen investments in tech reach £13.5 billion across 1400 companies this year alone, with record levels of investment predicted by the end of Q4 – very exciting news.

It’s incredible to think that according to our research, in the first half of 2021, UK Tech Start-Ups attracted more venture capital interest than France, Germany, and Israel combined.

The levels of investment saw a huge spike thanks to mega-rounds of funding from firms like Cinch and Revolut. This has shown a 3x improvement at the same time last year.

It’s being said that the UK is attracting larger deal sizes which are similar to the USA. And with growth set to continue, it will maintain its 3rd place spot behind the US and China.

Here are some of the VCs driving a lot of anticipation over here on what’s been happening and what’s coming next – it’s worth keeping an eye on them. Here is an infographic to show just some of the levels of investments in UK tech companies that are being generated out there.
