Hashtag for this round: #EDGE12
Scottish EDGE is delighted to announce that tickets for the final of Round 12 of the competition are now available.
An exciting new partnership with Stirling Council, Stirling University and Forth Valley College for Round 12 means that for the first time in Scottish EDGE history, the Final will be held out with its traditional Edinburgh home. Taking place on Tuesday, 29th May, 2018 at the Macrobert Arts Centre in Stirling, the Round 12 Final will support Scotland’s most innovative, high-growth potential startup businesses with up to £150,000 in cash and an all-encompassing business support package.
Having completed 11 successful rounds, Scottish EDGE – which is supported by the Royal Bank of Scotland, the Hunter Foundation, and the Scottish Government – has had an unquestionable impact on the Scottish economy.
Our winners have, to date, created an additional 2,660 Scottish jobs, generated an additional £79.78 million in turnover, and received additional investment to the sum of £67.44 million. In the last round of Scottish EDGE, cash prizes of £1.07 million were shared amongst thirty-eight winners across three different categories.
The exciting and fun final comprises a full day’s pitching event offering the chance to watch this year’s Scottish EDGE finalists pitch for up to £150,000 in front of an expert panel of judges. For the six hundred expected attendees throughout the day, the event also offers the opportunity to meet and learn from a variety of Scottish businesses and entrepreneurial support organisations in the Exhibitor Atrium.
An evening awards ceremony will follow in Edinburgh on 14th June, during which the winners of Scottish EDGE’s pitching rounds, including the special Higgs EDGE and Creative EDGE award winners, will be announced. There will also be an unveiling of the prizes across the competition’s sub-categories – Young EDGE and Wildcard EDGE.
