Is the Northern tech scene investable? Here’s what the investors have to say

27 Apr, 2016

We caught up with global investor Wempy Dyocta Koto of Wardour and Oxford, and local investor Hugh Campbell of GP Bullhound, at the Business Rocks Summit in Manchester for their views.

If you were to judge whether or not the tech sector in the North of England is an appealing prospect for investors based solely on what you see and hear in the news and wider media, you might conclude wrongly.

Here we talk to two influential investors (one global, one local) about the North’s standout sectors from an investment perspective, how there are already 11 companies in the region worth more than $1bn, how valuations here are much more reasonable than those you see in Silicon Valley, and how entrepreneurs can ensure their business is viewed as investable rather than just plain interesting.
