UK Funders Map December Investment Deals
“London is usually the strongest region in the UK in terms of angel investment, and December 2013 was no exception – there were six deals in London, and five in the rest of the UK. Yorkshire and Humberside came second, with two deals.
Three of the eleven UK companies that attained equity investment from angels in December give us a fascinating insight into the changing face of retail. One, Gousto, delivers ingredients to consumers’ doorsteps in exact portions for recipes, along with instruction cards on how to prepare the dish. Another, StreetHub, enables local independent retailers to provide same-day delivery. And, finally, Metail has developed an online virtual fitting room that allows users to try on clothes virtually in the comfort of their home.”
