Subscribers to YCF get:

  1. Our monthly publication in both printed and pdf format, which includes:
  • reports on recent investment deals
  • details of recent exits (trade sales and IPOs)
  • investor announcements of new funds, or track records
  • interviews with company founders
  • surveys of market sectors where young companies are making their mark
  • listings of major grant and award winners (SMART, Scottish EDGE, Converge Challenge, and others) – not just the winners, but also finalists
  • tips and advice from our sponsors

Most of our subscribers turn first to our Deals Monitor, a two-page centre spread giving comprehensive details of all recent deals we have tracked, whether or not publicly announced, and whether or not reported in separate articles in the publication.

  1. Access to our searchable online Archive.

The Archive contains over fifteen years of articles, and is a valuable resource for anyone looking to find out the background of named young companies, investors, awards programmes, market sectors and the like.

  1. Our Weekly Digest

A short email summary of press releases relating to the young company sector, with links to the full announcements.

  1. A heavily discounted Subscribers’ rate for our YCF Annual Conference in September

This is worth over 25% of the annual subscription fee, so for anyone who can come to the conference taking out a subscription should be a no-brainer! Slides from previous conferences, and details of this year’s conference, are given on a separate tab here.
