Startup News 2016 UK

With our
UK Startup review of 2016 now two thirds done, we return to cover the key Startup happenings and news stories that occurred during the months of September and October.

In July and August we covered amongst other things, the post BREXIT startup / tech fallout, the lure of Berlin as a replacement for London as a base for Tech Startups and a whole load of Investment and Startup related news and events.

September started a little more chilled out....

  • In disappointing news, it was reported that London coffee shop App startup Dripapp had just lost out on funding (apparently BREXIT vote related) and would need to find a potential buyer to support its plans.

  • Apps World returned to the London ExCeL on the 19th-20th October.
