London has less than 20 per cent of SMEs in the UK, yet receives 50 per cent of equity deals. Continuing their inquiry into the venture capital market, MPs on the cross-party Committee will explore the disparities between accessing venture capital funding in different regions across the UK and solutions to solve such imbalances.

MPs will examine the sources of funding and whether access venture capital funding can be based on ‘who you know’. Speaking to business founders, the Committee will also gather views on scaling up with venture capital funding, regional inequality and diversity.
