Funding Watch – June

Posted on 30th June 2017

Here at, we’ve decided to start a new blog series that will help you track all the latest startup investments that happen in London.

Why you ask? Well having fully emerged ourselves in the startup space, we know how fast things move and how updates can be scattered and sporadic. So we have decided to monitor and gather all key information and put it one accessible place so you don’t have to.

This blog series intents to be a shot of information that you can easily digest on the go.

A quick straight to the point update. No sales. No BS. No fluff. Just valuable information.
