Wales has one of the strongest funding support networks in the UK and a growing number of co-funds designed to support their explosion of dynamic technology businesses. Register below to meet the key organisations fuelling the growth across the region.


With a huge shift in emphasis towards regional funding support, the Connected Investing event series will lift the lid on the latest initiatives open to both the investor and start-up communities.

Starting at 1pm, Connected Investing will feature the latest updates from newly emerging funds, including the British Business Investments £100m fund and Innovate UK’s regional angel investment accelerator.

We will also take a look at how the changing face of funding has placed more emphasis on the importance of angel investment and hear from inspirational entrepreneurs and their journey to building and exiting successful businesses.

Finally, the event will end with an evening of networking over drinks and canapés.

The Connected Investing Cardiff event series is being delivered through a partnership between UKBAA, the trade body for early stage investing and Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, a non-departmental public body funded by a grant-in-aid from the UK government.
