Connect with the UK's top early-stage tech investors

NextGen is an invitation-only event that connects the UK and Ireland's most exciting young companies directly with top early-stage investors, in a relaxed and informal setting.

In 2017, we made almost 1,000 new investor/founder intros, connecting founders with investors from top-tier firms including Notion Capital, Connect Ventures, Episode1 Ventures, Hoxton Capital and BGF Ventures. For 2018, we're delighted to team up with our friends at Silicon Valley Bank UK to help ambitious businesses find the funding partners they need to succeed.

Bottom line: NextGen offers an unmissable opportunity to connect with smart investors, take in the best tech conference happening in the UK this summer — and spend a little time relaxing at the incomparable Edinburgh festivals!



Your time is valuable, so attendance on both sides is by invitation only. We're invite investors who are ready to make deals — and companies who are ready to grow.


To make sure you get to talk to the right people, we invite VCs who specialise in early-stage tech investments (seed to Series A+)

Candid conversation

This isn't a pitch competition: this is an opportunity for you to have relaxed, informal and private conversations with smart investors.
