Sixty Scottish start-ups have been chosen to pitch their business to 100´s of investors at next year’s Engage, Invest, Exploit (EIE) investor conference as it moves to a new home at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC).
To be a great entrepreneurial city, you need lots of different cogs to be well-oiled and working towards the same goal: to support and nurture young founders and ventures through the early stages of company life and all the opportunities and challenges along the way. Edinburgh, being awarded Entrepreneurial City of the Year provides a significant seedbed for globally ambitious companies.
Last week Engage Invest Exploit (EIE) was successfully launched in Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Bellrock Technology, Cognitive Geology, eoSurgical, Flavourly, Ice Robotics, IQX, Klik2learn, Mallzee, Speech Graphics, Sunamp and UWI Technology, as Scottish high growth companies took the opportunity to pitch to Chinese investors.
Mallzee has now become the UK’s top non-retailer shopping app. With more than half a million users and over 150 fashion brands, our exclusive interview with Mallzee’s digital marketing manager, Rachelle Garnham, takes marketing strategy to a new level, discussing their significant and successful growth in user base.
Our new interview blog series celebrating Scottish Entrepreneurs begins by catching up with Jeremie Warner from Power A Life Ltd: “We definitely leverage the social aspect of the business, but social enterprises must not forget they’re a business that needs to generate profit and revenue to be sustainable.”
In Scotland the support and attitude for entrepreneurship and creating new business has been phenomenal, but if we are to reap the benefits of this thriving entrepreneurial spirit, we need to ensure these start-ups become strong, and growing businesses.
