Are there difference between UK and USA investor expectations?

  • Answer by Anke Corbin - Team Globig

    The British investors tend to be more conservative and less risk taking. They also appreciate third party expert validation of your data, business plan and hypotheses. Companies we talked to said their UK investors are more engaged in the day to day operations and decision making compared to their US investors. That can be both positive and negative depending upon if you work well with your investors or if you prefer a more hands off relationship. All investors are different and you can find both UK and US investors that are opposite of these generalizations.
