The funding scene in the UK is still very much alive and kicking as evidenced by the $9.7bn funding which London start-ups alone received in 2019. This figure is greater than the combined funding of Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam and Madrid showing that the UK funding scene is very much hot.
We love the work the following start-ups are doing and we wanted to congratulate them on their recent success through our very own Kaiku Start-Up Shout-Outs!
