IV Speaker Series

Realising potential through inspirational speakers

The iV Speaker Series is a networking programme featuring inspirational talks from local heroes and global success stories to raise the ambition of our nation’s entrepreneurs and unleash the potential we know they possess. We bring some of the best speakers to Scotland so you can be sure of an interesting and engaging topic each time.

 iV Speaker Series also encompasses the hugely popular ‘Pitch n’ Grill’ format which sees early stage companies pitch to a table before being grilled by the group. The process is repeated 6 times giving the entrepreneur immediate feedback on their proposition as well as all-important pitch practice! For the audience it’s a fun and entertaining way to get to see some fresh and upcoming companies with the evening finishing with a BBQ.

The value of iV Speaker Series is the opportunity to network with other entrepreneurs, mentors and investors and experience the unexpected outcomes that can result from these connections.

Who’s it for?

Entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, business advisers, students…and anyone interested in technology!


Our next iV Speaker Series will start in September 2019. If you would like more information or to discuss these events further, please contact Danny Helson iV Speaker Series events will be announced here soon.
