Abstract

Last week I wrote about the need for more support for our high tech start-ups, so it was gratifying to see government’s recognition of this gap for our economy’s start-up engine with their announcement of the UK Future Fund. To be launched in the month following the lockdown, the scheme enables up to £250 million of government funds to be used as match-funding where private investors lend equal sums of between £125,000 to £5 million to UK-based high tech SMEs. Government has also pledged a further £750 million to Innovate UK which remains a vital source of finance for companies prioritising development of new technologies targeting near-to-market applications.
