What is the Business Support?

TechInvest: Investing across the UK is an exciting new event series presented in partnership with the UK Business Angels Association and the British Business Bank. This four-part series will spotlight tech innovators from the South West, the Midlands, Yorkshire and the Humber, and Northern Ireland, in a series of London-based pitch showcases.

Presented as four separate events, each pitch showcase will spotlight a different UK Region or Nation and 10 of its leading founders. Working with a panel of expert judges, a selection of top innovators will be handpicked to take the stage and pitch at each event. Drawn from UKBAA’s community early-stage investors, the audience will be made up of leading angels and VCs who collectively deploy over £2.3bn per annum, each seeking to tap into incredible high-growth potential talent.

The next event in the series is focusing on the Midlands so, if you are a tech innovator actively raising investment and offering a game-changing solution in your sector apply by 22nd January at midnight for your chance to pitch!
