Really positive news for the UK tech investment scene as it reaches a record $18bn – the highest in Europe!

The record level of investment was boosted by “mega-rounds” in the likes of fintech Revolut, online videoconferencing firm Hopin, online car sales platform Cinch and InsurTech Marshmallow (to name but a few...).

The $18bn raised by UK startups in the first half of this year was nearly three times higher than the same period in 2020; such good news as the technology industry continues to find higher levels across all industries.
