Equity Gap marks 200th Scottish EDGE Pledge as first Angel Group to join the network

Equity Gap has become the first angel group in Scotland to make a Scottish EDGE Pledge, marking the initiative’s 200th pledgee.

Equity Gap members have invested over £16m in 22 Scottish EDGE winning companies since the organisation’s inception in 2014. These include online booking service Appointedd, microbiome therapeutics specialist Enterobiotix, zero waste Omega-3 producer MiAlgae, and digital compliance and onboarding platform Amiqus, which was founded by fellow Pledger Callum Murray.

The EDGE Pledge was launched in early 2017 with the intention of providing a platform for successful entrepreneurs to give something back to the EDGE competition from exits or a donation, and in turn support Scotland’s next great entrepreneurs. On average, eighty-seven percent of eligible winning businesses in each round of Scottish EDGE sign the pledge.

Equity Gap has committed to support the EDGE competition by inviting investor members to make a discretionary donation from any exits achieved by companies supported by Scottish EDGE.

This commitment is intended to help raise the profile of Scottish EDGE among both Equity Gap’s investors and the wider angel community in Scotland, many of whom are committed to supporting early-stage companies to help generate wider economic benefits in Scotland.
