UK Investment Boom – A VC Perspective

The UK tech sector has seen record-breaking levels of venture capital investment in 2021, with records being broken across sectors and locations. Despite the pandemic and Brexit, interest in British tech firms has remained exceptionally high, with the UK currently being the third-biggest destination for investment (after the US & China) and pulling away from other European tech hubs. From FinTech to HealthTech, and EdTech to GreenTech, UK scale-ups are at the centre of the pandemic recovery and rebuilding the economy.

But why is interest in UK tech companies so high compared to other technologically advanced countries? Can we expect this incredible growth trajectory to continue? This session will explore the reasons behind the investment boom in UK tech companies and why investors have set their sights on the UK. Our esteemed panel, featuring George Robson of Sequoia and Anne Glover CBE of Amadeus Capital, will also discuss the UK investment landscape and future trends in the sector.
