Venture Capital Investment in Scotland doubles in one year

From Insider today:

‘Venture Capital investment in Scottish scale-ups almost doubled in 2019, according to new research. The Global Venture Pulse Survey reveals the amount invested in Scottish fast-growth companies in 2019 reached £19.7 million, up from £10 million in 2018. The increase was partly driven by a busy fourth quarter which included a £66 million investment in Well-Safe Solutions to fund its next stage of growth as a well-decommissioning company.’
