2018 State of Seed Money Report

Aug 3, 2018 · 1 min read

2018 global venture capital activity has reached post-Dot Com records, and seed and angel capital invested is up 39% compared to last year. But we still have a way to go before self employment is as accessible to people as it should be. Start-up founders face a myriad of complex challenges in taking an idea and turning it into a commercially viable product or service.

To better understand the investment side of this challenge, I am surveying over 1400 early stage investors and will share the aggregated findings with respondents in a free report. We recognise this is only a small sampling of what’s going on in the larger ecosystem, but we hope this snapshot provides value to the community so we can all have some context about what is being funded, and where this is leading us.

If you are an early stage investor in the UK or Europe, please include your details in this survey. Its only questions and should take you less than 3 minutes to complete.

If you know of anyone that you think should be included in these results, please feel free to share this link with them: https://goo.gl/forms/nHuTtLyabLMRXaMB3

Many thanks.
