It was London Tech week last week. Missed out on CogX but attended Startup Grind and The Future of Work Summit. Sadly both events were disappointing and I didn’t gain much new insight or improve my network.

This was a good read on Seed Stage funding in Europe by Mosaic Ventures: HERE. No surprise, AI still gets the most investment despite the fact it is so misunderstood. Ecommerce was the area that investors disliked most (maybe because it is more suited to debt than equity investment!).
