Alex McPherson, Founding Partner, Ignition Law
"London has been an invaluable place for Ignition Law to grow and develop. It has a hugely progressive, vibrant and supportive entrepreneurial community of start-ups, scale-ups and entrepreneurs generally. The City boasts access to huge capital and world-leading legal and professional services firms, institutions, accelerator programmes and partners, with whom we work very collaboratively and synergistically. There are first rate universities and Business Schools in, and near to London (and in the UK generally), which both spin-out their own incredible companies, as well as supporting extraordinarily talented entrepreneurs and business leaders.
"The UK, and London, are the best places to start-up and scale a business, to raise money and recruit talent. The UK’s hugely popular (and internationally respected) English legal system and tax incentives for early stage companies are also a huge draw for entrepreneurs. A national sense of championing new companies and entrepreneurs has really helped both on our journey and for the wider boom we are seeing in new companies."
