UK based Venture Funds & Angel Networks

The UK has the largest concentration of venture capital funds and angel networks in Europe offering startups multiple ways to secure funds at all stages of growth from seed to scale up. Seed rounds are often sources as part of an incubator or accelerator deal – more information here.  Additional investment sources can be found on crunchbase, Go4Venture and tech.eu  who provide more extensive lists.  It is also useful to know which funds have raised capital recently.
