Coming off a record 2014 for venture capital invested, the U.K. has seen a slowdown in VC activity through the first eight-plus months of 2015. So far, the region's startups have raised just about 60% of last year's GBP2.4 billion total and only claimed roughly half of last year's 512 completed financings. Since the beginning of 2014, 427 VC investors have made at least one deal in the U.K., with 41% of those participating in a transaction during the past six months. Of the 40 most active investors into the U.K., only two are headquartered outside Western Europe.
