Tech Start Ups

Bringing the future to you

For the first time ever in a single financial quarter, London tech startups attracted more than $500 billion dollars worth of venture capital investment from the period of January to March 2015. London, in particular the trendy and tech savy Eastend of the city, is one of the world’s leading tech capitals boasting an impressive array of seasoned start ups and new ventures. Success stories line the streets of the capital and this new industry has breathed new life into the city and has often been the catalyst for social redevelopment as well as economic growth. Known for its pro business policies and favourable economic climate London, and the U.K, is set to become and international tech hub that will lead the way in innovation, design and excellence.

Contact our team of experienced UK immigration lawyers who have assisted numerous tech start ups in recent years. We are contactable via email on info@westkin.com, can be reached by the enquiry box on the right hand side of the page and on the telephone number 0207 118 4546.

Central to our philosophy of innovation and excellence, Westkin Associates is proud to assist many businesses and start ups, especially those in the rapidly expanding tech industry, in all UK immigration matters.

In staying in line with its tradition of fostering business, the UK Government is keen to assist in the development of this crucial new industry.  With this in mind, the UK government seeks to bring the best and the brightest from across the world to make London not only a creative capital, but also their home.

Steps included the creation of a “Silicon Roundabout” in Central London specifically designed for young tech companies to operate within. Similarly, UKBA have also instituted lower levels of requirements for entrepreneurs who seek to enter to develop their ideas in technology based start-ups.

For example the UK entrepreneur scheme normally requires an initial investment of 200,000 seed capital. However for those companies that have set up in the United Kingdom with assistance from certain venture capitalists firms and certain UK government funding schemes they will find their initial outcome and outlay reduced to only £50,000 instead of the £200,000 otherwise.

The UK remains committed to help these young tech start-ups and Westkin is on hand to assist start-ups in all their immigration matters. Our extensive experience allows us to help you understand all available options and to guide you through the application process efficiently and professionally.

These forms of assistance can include:

1. Entrepreneur visas
2. Investor visas
3. Sole Responsibility Visas
4. Tier 2 licences, including Intra Company Transfers

We are featured on the UKTI’s U.K Inward investor advisory network highlighting our experience and skill with assisting businesses starting up in the U.K

Westkin Associates are proud to offer a client tailored service that is honest, professional and assists our clients along every stage of their application process. For more information and to speak to one of our expert immigration lawyers contact us at  online: contact  or via 0207 1184 546.
