    1. Nada

      Have you seen the sheer number of VC dollars that are headquartered in London versus Berlin? Yeah, Berlin is fun, but it is not exactly Sand Hill Road or even London yet from a $$$ standpoint.

  1. The overall Tech City initiative is good but I find it annoying that it really just focuses on a single area of London. The UK is not like US cities/states as there is consistency across the country in terms of tax, company structures, etc so I think it should have a much broader geographical remit.

    I’d like to see more involvement and incentives for startups. Right now it seems to have had a lot of success driving inbound interest from outside investors and larger corporates. Getting them to set up within London/UK is good for the country generally and it’s good to see a tech focused branch of UKTI working on these kind of things.
