Looking for seed investors for your tech startup in London?

We asked the founders at each of our London coworking locations and compiled a comprehensive list of all the venture capital firms who act as seed investors in London. There are a wopping 67 of them who invest in startups at seed stage as of last updating this list a few months back.

Note: we haven’t included angel investors in this list, just Venture Capital firms in London, but there are many amazing angel investors in London who will take part in seed rounds. We recommend Angel List as the best place to source angel investors…and good old fashioned introductions from a trusted connection to get in contact with them (the same holds true for VC’s).
