人工智能、机器人和大数据成伦敦地区风投新热点

科技产业总体风投环境良好

伦敦科技周创办人对风险资本流动的分析显示,今年第一季度伦敦科技公司共吸引风投资金3.95亿英镑,比2016年第四季度的2.45亿英镑高出不少。

伦敦科技周大使及科技伦敦倡导创办者Russ Shaw说:

“过去十年间,伦敦已经成为全球科技产业中心。最近,我们在fintech、人工智能和机器人方面所展现的专业技术说明伦敦已经走在了科技创新的前沿。伦敦的优势来源于这座城市的多样性、丰富的人才和全球关系资源。这些是我们巨大成功的基础。我们的科技产业将继续为我们创造更多工作和财富,我们也应尽力保护这些因素。”

人工智能、机器人与大数据变身风投新热点

该分析还显示,人工智能、机器人和大数据是目前该地区投资增长最快的三个领域。伦敦的人工智能和机器学习公司尤其受投资者欢迎,2016年吸引投资额达8575万英镑,比2011年的300万英镑高20多倍。

该分析显示,伦敦的人工智能公司在过去五年间吸引了2.07亿英镑的风险投资。谷歌DeepMind和Magic Pony的两项收购案占比较大。

伦敦的机器人和无人机技术公司收到的风投也大幅增加,比如去年总额就已达到1400万英镑,而2014和2015年分别只有4万英镑和7万英镑。Starship Technologies 2017年1月的1395万英镑的融资是主要增长原因。

Fintech发展势头依然强劲

伦敦的fintech公司在过去五年中吸引了超过20亿英镑的风投,比SaaS、移动和电子商务等任何一个垂直领域都多。

其中,2017年第一季度累计吸收投资1.77亿英镑,表现可谓强劲。几笔重要交易包括Monzo(2200万英镑)、Funding Circle(8200万英镑)和Currencycloud(2000万英镑)。

对于这样的投资热潮,伦敦商业副市长Rajesh Agrawal表示:“伦敦是欧洲的科技首都,这里有各种各样的创造性人才,所以伦敦理所应当成为世界新兴技术(如移动支付、大数据和人工智能)发展的引导者。如今伦敦的科技产业为整座城市提供了就业岗位并推动了整体经济增长。”他说自脱欧公投后,伦敦的科技公司仍然吸引了超过10亿英镑的风投。

 

Artificial intelligence, robotics and big data are among the fastest growing areas for investment, according to analysis of VC capital flows carried out by the founders of London Tech Week.

The findings show that London’s AI and machine learning firms have become especially attractive for investors, drawing in 20 times more investment in 2016 (£85.75m) than the amount raised in 2011 (£3m).

According to the research, London-based AI firms have attracted more than £207m in VC funding in the past five years. This, the research adds, was boosted by deals closed by Google DeepMind and Magic Pony.

Additionally, VC investment into London firms developing robotics and drone technologies has also increased.

The findings show that more than £14m was invested last year, compared with significantly smaller amounts raised in 2014 (£40,000) and 2015 (£70,000). This increase in funding is largely due to Starship Technologies’ £13.95m raise in January 2017.

London FinTech

London-based FinTech firms raised more than £2bn in VC funding over the past five years, which the research says is more than that of any other vertical including SaaS, mobile and e-commerce.

Financial technology companies in the UK’s capital city saw strong investment in Q1 2017, attracting more than £177m in investment. Major deals included Monzo’s £22m deal, Funding Circle’s £82m raise and Currencycloud’s £20m round.

Deputy Mayor for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, commented on the findings: “London is the technology capital of Europe. With a rich melting pot of creative talent, London is leading the way in the development of emerging technologies such as mobile payments, big data and artificial intelligence. Our world-class tech sector is creating jobs and growth across the city, with Londoners working alongside the best and brightest from across Europe and all over the world.”

He went on to note that since the Brexit referendum, London-based technology companies had attracted more than £1bn in VC investment. This, he added, signified “that London remains open to investment, talent and innovation from all over the world”.

London tech in Q1 2017

Overall, London tech firms raised £395m in VC funding in Q1 of this year. This, the research shows, is significantly more than the £245m raised during Q4 of 2016.

Russ Shaw, London Tech Week ambassador and Founder of Tech London Advocates, commented: “Over the course of the last decade London has become a global hub for the technology sector. More recently, our expertise in FinTech, artificial intelligence and robotics has shown that the city is at the cutting edge of technological innovation.

“London’s strength derives from the city’s diversity, rich pool of talent and global connections. This has been the basis for our considerable success, and it is important to protect these factors as our tech sector continues to create more jobs and wealth,” he concluded.
