With an advanced, diversified economy and technologically-savvy people, the UK is home to many startups and tech companies. The mature British startup ecosystem and availability of capital helps support multiple local startups to expand nationally and fuel their development across the world.
365体育网站Involved in a number of industries and businesses, many of these startups are operating through software or cloud-based platform. Though the number of startups that operate through technology is clearly overwhelming, many of these companies are also operating in the financial sector, a traditional specialty of the UK’s economy. However, from e-commerce and to healthcare, from telecommunications to artificial intelligence, many UK startups are also engaged in the application of technology to new verticals, and the disruption of a large number of industries.
Though many of these companies are already well-known in the UK and abroad, reaching a large population with their products and services, some of them are less famous, as they focus on certain business niches and take charge of problems faced by specific professions. Others are competing against each other, particularly in the field of financial services and FinTech. Nevertheless, many of these British startups have already reached the status of “Unicorn”, that is to say, a valuation of more than a billion dollars.
