The objective of this report is to assess the current state of the UK environment for financing scale-up companies (‘scale-ups’), and to identify key recommendations for policy makers, industry leaders and the investment community. While the UK has experienced strong growth in start-up activity in recent years, it still faces significant challenges in financing the development of scale-ups. This report identifies areas for improvement and provides practical recommendations for directions of change. These recommendations focus on the development of a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem that is able to cultivate early-stage start-ups into high-growth scale-ups.
