Scottish EDGE Scales Up With £1M Injection From Scottish Enterprise

The quality and quantity of exceptional start-up businesses capable of scaling from Scotland has seen Scottish EDGE receive additional funding of £1m from Scottish Enterprise to grow the competition.

Recently, 62 shortlisted businesses pitched to panels of expert judges across the country as part of an intensive three-day long semi-final, over half of which have now been selected to pitch live at the Scottish EDGE Final next month. An additional day of pitching has been arranged following Scottish Enterprise’s funding input to accommodate the increased number of finalists.

39 businesses will now pitch for a share in Scottish EDGE’s increased prize pot of almost £2 million to a panel of judges chaired by Simon Hannah of Filshill and Kerry Sharp of the Scottish Investment Bank, Scottish Enterprise’s investment arm, at the Scottish EDGE Final on 5th and 6th December in Edinburgh.
