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....

  • TransferWise, the well known British money transfer startup launched in Japan.

Startup news in 2016 UK


  • 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.

Hopefully that gave you a taste of many of key UK Startup news stories that occurred during September and October 2016. Keep an eye out via Startacus itself, our Twitter handle, or via our Facebook page where all of Startacus content is shared. Until next time!
