Despite a small decrease in deal volume and amount of growth capital raised in Q3 2021 compared to last quarter, investor appetite has remained strong throughout the summer months. The tech sector continues to dominate, but what’s particularly noticeable this quarter is the growing interest in the edtech space. Investors are seemingly keen to invest both in instances where platforms provide gig-economy-style solutions to match students with teachers, as well as content solutions distributing educational material at scale. Although there are signs that the UK economy’s rate of growth has started to slow, we currently see no real diminution in investor interest in the UK growth capital market and 2021 is still set to be a record-breaking year.
