We’ve been reflecting on a transformational year at Par Equity, which is a testament to the incredible work from the team, the fantastic strides being made by the portfolio and the huge support we receive from our growing investor base.
However, we should consider this in the context of the UK VC industry, with early data indicating c. £26bn was invested across the UK in 2021, up from c. £12bn in 2020. The regions (outside London and the South East) attracted 34% of that investment and produced 9 of the 29 unicorns created last year. Incredible progress.
As an early-stage and scale-up investor, we want to match the ambitions of our portfolio companies. In 2022, we want to deploy more money into the best technology companies coming out of the North of the U.K. to improve how we support our portfolio and to continue to deliver attractive returns for our investors. Onwards and upwards!
A big thank you to everyone in the Par community!
