Why are we hosting a Northern Summit?

Help ensure a connected supply of finance: The majority of equity investment still takes place in London and the South East and UKBAA wants to help ensure there is a connected supply of finance for growth businesses from startup through to scale-up across all the UK’s regions

Promote early-stage and scale-up investment in the regions: There are fantastic growth businesses in the regions and UKBAA wants to encourage and promote early-stage and scale-up investment across the whole of the UK

Support the Northern Powerhouse: The government has committed to creating a ‘Northern Powerhouse’ and UKBAA wants to reinforce and lend its support to that commitment

Raise awareness about new investment opportunities: There are many investment developments in the regions, including the new funds being launched in the area (Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund and the Midlands Engine Investment Fund), and UKBAA wants to raise awareness about these opportunities

Drive growth: The objective of the government’s industrial strategy is to address regional disparities and drive growth across the whole country and UKBAA would like to actively support this ambition
