Despite Brexit, the UK and London continue to dominate the European tech investment landscape.
Latest figures reveal that Britain’s tech sector attracted more venture capital investment and tech IPOs than any other European hub in 2018.
According to London & Partners, London’s tech companies received £1.8 billion venture capital funding of the total £2.49 billion raised by British tech firms.
London Tech Week is the best time of the year to be in the UK to leverage the opportunities and connections, at a time when every hub, investor, startup program and corporate have their doors open and welcome conversations with international startups.
How the WA Government’s London office can assist
WA tech startups can use the London office as a launching pad for entering the UK, European and Israeli markets.
Their office has knowledge on the tech sector and the broader economic opportunities in the UK, Europe and Israel region.
The facilitation of international growth for WA companies ultimately leads to flow-on benefits for Western Australia – such as enhanced recognition for WA as a centre for tech and the creation of more jobs in their Australian offices.
