Data shows a positive outlook for North East equity


Category: Uncategorized

We’re delighted to release our latest report – a free analysis of North East equity investment into high-growth companies and SMEs from 2011 – 2016. It’s jampacked full of interesting findings, stats and charts.

If you’re not familiar with our reports, these are written by our in-house Research team. Our quarterly investment review, The Deal, look at equity investment across the UK, but this time we take (the first of many) closer looks at a particular region.

Our headline findings show North East equity investment is in recovery from the nationwide equity investment slump, with deal numbers for the incomplete third quarter already surpassing those from the previous quarter.

Technology companies take a smaller share of investment in the region than they do across the UK, but we believe it’s onwards and upwards for tech in the North East, as the region becomes an increasingly desirable place to start a business.

We shine a light on some of the most successful companies in the North East, and take a look at their journeys from startup to where they are today.

And finally, we take a look at the most active investors in the region – government backed funds – who account for 45% of deals in the region.
