The debate still raging around the UK’s Future Fund
Two weeks ago, the UK government announced a £1bn support package for startups.
The news came after France and Germany announced their own support schemes for the tech sector, and on the back of fervent lobbying by the Save Our Startups campaign. As part of a £500m Future Fund, the government promised to invest £250m alongside private investors into high-growth companies, and also said it would make £750m worth of grants and loans available to research and development-heavy small businesses.
But not everyone was happy with the result.
