The UK's tech sector continues to grow, fuelled by billions of pounds of venture capital (VC) money.

The latest figures from London & Partners show that 2019 is set to be a record year for VC investment in UK technology startups, with London tech firms alone attracting £2.6 billion in funding in the first half of 2019. This follows the trend of 2018, when the European tech investment table published by Pitchbook again had the UK as the leading recipient of VC funding for tech companies.

This investment has led to a vibrant venture capital ecosystem here in the UK. A range of firms around the country now offer various levels of investments at different stages in a company's growth, with most focusing on specific industry verticals.

Here we list some of the top firms in the country and why you might want to pitch them.
