Tech City UK Blog

Tech City UK has partnered with Innogy UK Innovation Hub and Seedcamp to understand how investors can better help startups and scaling businesses, and we need your help!

One of Tech City UK’s key objectives is ensuring that the UK is the best place to start and grow a digital business. To do this we need to understand the needs and wants of companies at every stage to inform policy and support programmes.


Investment into UK digital tech companies (private equity and VC funding) reached a record breaking £6.7bn in 2016. Its imperative that when investment is taken, its always for the right reasons and the needs of the company are taken into account.

To help uncover this, we’ve partnered with Innogy UK Innovation Hub and Seedcamp to survey the views of the community.


So what do startups really need from investors and accelerators? What resources are most valuable and what do they want more of? These, and plenty more questions will be answered in our research report which will be published in March.

All we need you to do is complete a quick survey and we’ll send you the report as soon as it’s ready. You’ll also have the chance to enter into our free prize draw where two lucky winners will receive cash prices of £500 and £250!


The survey takes around 7-8 minutes to complete, thank you in advance!
