The Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor has become a magnet for investors in recent years, and offers an array of opportunities to add to your portfolio.
Thriving start-up communities, particularly focused around Cambridge and Norwich as well as busy towns such as Bury St Edmunds and Haverhill, provide the perfect conditions for talented entrepreneurs to develop ideas that can change the world. Indeed, the latest venture pulse report from KPMG shows that companies in the region attracted venture capital funding of £291m in the second quarter of 2018 alone.
With a rich history of investment, going back to the original ‘Cambridge Phenomenon’ in the 1980s, many major investment funds are active in the region looking for the game-changing ideas of tomorrow, while experienced angel investors provide a network of support for the next generation of CEOs.
Legendary entrepreneur Hermann Hauser’s Amadeus Capital Partners is based in Cambridge, along with the likes of IQ Capital and Cambridge Innovation Capital, which has over £100m invested in companies spanning AI, life sciences and edge computing.
Anglia Capital Group also plays a growing role in backing promising businesses. Based in Norfolk and Suffolk, the fund comprises a group of Angel Investors who invest in start-ups and early growth-stage businesses with innovative and potentially disruptive technology at their core.
The Tech Corridor provides the perfect opportunity to invest in the business and science parks of the future to meet the needs of the region’s fast-growing tech clusters.
