Quarterly Investment Briefing

The Quarterly Investment Briefing is an event which brings investors and enablers of investment (lawyers, accountants etc.) together to network, share and learn. The event is a great opportunity to find out more about the investment ecosystem locally. Each event includes a rundown of who is investing, an update on the latest investment news and lightning speakers related to our event theme.

Silicon Gorge Investor Showcase

Twice a year we also run our Silicon Gorge Investor Showcase where at each event 10-12 of the best startups and scaleups in the region looking for between £100k – £2m in investment will pitch to a room of investors and enablers. These events run in April and November, contact us if you’re like to know more.

Other ways you can engage with the region

There are a number of investors physically located in the region. These include Bristol Private Equity Club, Dorset Business Angels and Maven Capital Partners. Recently we have seen a couple of new investment funds launched in the region – Science Creates Ventures and Newable with BPEC. However, with close proximity to London and the Golden Triangle, we’re keen to welcome more investors to the region, even just for a few hours or days.

Venture capitalists from London and overseas are being more and more creative in how they engage with local founders – whether bringing their whole team to join the SPARKIEs (TechSPARK’s annual tech awards), relocating a team member for a few months, or running sessions for our startups via incubators. Why don’t you get involved this year?

You might also like to check out the investment ecosystem locally to discover the angel groups that are active in the South West.
