There is no one answer to this question as to what the best start up funding method is in the UK as it is constantly changing and evolving.

However, some popular sources of start up funding for businesses in the UK include high net worth individuals, family offices, venture capitalists, private equity firms, and angel investors. Additionally, government programs such as the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and the Business Growth Fund (BGF) offer a range of funding opportunities for small businesses. Finally, many UK cities have their own initiatives designed to support start ups, such as the London Economic Development Corporation (LEDC).

Who you target depends on factors such the stage of your business, the current economic landscape and the timelines you are working on. It is often best practice to have conversations with a broad range of investors as you grow your investor network.

So, if you are looking for start up funding in the UK, it is important to do your research, leverage the support in your network and speak with experienced professionals to find the right source of funding for your business.
