I’ve decided to go the whole hog and pull out the whole of 2007′s list of VC investments in tech companies, as compiled by CalibreOne recently. Over the next few days and weeks I’m going to delve into what happened to a few of these firms, a large number of which are the kinds of companies TechCrunch would take an interest in. But for now, feast your eyes on a year’s worth (all in dollars) of venture capital in the UK (after the jump, and I’ll do the same for Ireland shortly).
