In 201Pitch NYC introduces the very best of the UK’s tech startups to leading US-based investors looking for opportunities to take a stake in 15-20 fast-growing firms as they grow their US business.
In 2015, an independent study for the UK government identified scaling up as a huge challenge for UK startups with international aspirations, “There is a lack of follow-on capital in the UK, compounded by short-term investor mind-sets.”
Despite the increase in venture capital and corporate venture in the UK, a significant gap remains between series A and larger funding rounds. This creates a mutually beneficial opportunity for firms seeking capital with the intention to rapidly grow in the US market with local know-how.
These 15-20 firms are selected for their US growth potential and through Pitch NYC and the supporting Investor Readiness Bootcamp, US investors will have early access to meet the founders and explore the investment potential.
This event is ideal for both VC firms, corporate venture investors, super angels and syndicates looking for exciting opportunities with UK HQ’ed emerging tech firms who have an existing US based, or are looking to establish a major presence in 3-9 months.
The morning of the event will see the companies pitch followed by a networking lunch with table-top company exhibits and invited members of the NYC tech community. The afternoon sessions will focus on the opportunities for US tech firms in setting up in the UK targeting the UK and European market.
