UK tech leads global growth in venture capital in 2019

Dealroom prepared a new report for Tech Nation and the UK Government’s Digital Economy Council. Investment in UK startups reached a record high of $13.2 billion in 2019. With 44% growth versus 2018, the UK outpaced the USA, China, Germany and France. The UK also continues to lead Europe by number of new unicorns, with eight new unicorns created in 2019. The report already received massive news coverage (FT, BBC, WSJ, etc), with commentary from London Mayor Sadiq Khan and many others. Check out the complete report now!

Upgrade of Data Commons for UK Tech

We've also upgraded Data Commons for UK Tech. Data Commons is the most complete and detailed picture of the UK’s tech ecosystem, launched in June 2019 in partnership with Tech Nation. The upgrade includes a new interactive map of the UK by region and by key tech hubs. All the recent Dealroom upgrades are also deployed on Data Commons (see Product News). Most importantly, Data Commons provides you with unlimited access to all underlying data from the report and much more!
