Show Notes 76: An optimistic 2024 with Chris Keen of Mishcon de Reya

Chris Keen, Head of Emerging Companies in Cambridge, at Mishcon de Reya joins us to provide a snapshot of what it has been like trying to raise and deploy capital over the last year. You can download the full Fundraising Report here.

We discuss the more challenging market of 2023, but with a deal level that remained almost the same as previous years, it’s looking rosy for 2024.

From Pre-seed through to Series D, Private Equity (PE) and Mergers and Acquisition (M&A), we talk about the dynamics of deals locally in Cambridge and throughout the UK. And Chris gives some useful guidance on when to engage with a lawyer, and note, the advice is to bring it further forward than you may think.

We also find out that many advisors are providing line of sight of investment potential from the Cambridge ecosystem to investors outside of the region – so that’s great news for our homegrown tech and innovation.

In this week's Tech News we have Infersens, lowRISC, Riverlane, Luminance, and 1Spatial.
