Investment in UK tech startups is booming, with firms raising more than $3.6bn in 2015, a rise of 70% from 2014. Supporting an ecosystem that boasts hundreds of accelerators, incubators, pre accelerators and government backed programmes the digital sector has been a central part of the UK’s economy.

There’s no signs of a slow down either, with European investors raising over $2bn in the first half of 2015, the bulk in the UK positioning the country as the gateway to Europe. The New Year news of China Equity Group’s £500m London based fund reinforcing this position.

This panel of experts from the UK tech sector will explore the current funding landscape what’s getting funded, by whom how those deals are done, the UK’s position on the global stage and share their views on what the future holds.
