Speed-Dating with Funders for Tech Businesses

September 5, 2018

At Business Funding Show, we recognise the enormous role that technology plays in the UK market. Over the last year, the performance of UK’s digital tech sector has been world-leading, with British firms attracting more capital than any other European country. The potential for funding within this sphere is massive, and many top investors are constantly searching for new attractive, innovative propositions. This is why on the 18th of September, we are hosting a Speed-Dating event exclusive for tech businesses, as part of our BFS Advance series!

This niche workshop is targeted at a range of B2B companies, who are not just tech-enabled, but also dedicated toward building new technology. Some of the sectors we are looking for include Deep Tech, AI, Robotics, Blockchain, MedTech, BioTech, FinTech, InsurTech, AdTech, BigData, Nanotech, Augmented & Virtual Reality, IoT, Smart Homes/Cities or PropTech.

No matter the sector or stage of your business, we will have an investor to suit your needs. Attending funders include:

Our network of funders represents a wide array of experience and diversified portfolios, but all have a strong overall interest in the tech sector. As reported by Tech Nation this year, the UK’s tech sector is growing almost three times faster than the rest of the economy, so there is no surprise in all the attention which is given to tech startups.

We're entering a new age of automation, where robots, machine learning, deep learning, big data, IoT & AI are profoundly changing the balance of entire industries, and this represents massive opportunity for both investors and entrepreneurs alike.
