Scottish EDGE is delighted to announce that tickets for the final of Round 13 of the competition are now available. Taking place on Thursday, 6th Dec, 2018 at the Royal Bank of Scotland’s Gogarburn Conference Centre, the Round 13 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 12 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 1381 Scottish jobs, generated an additional £104.22 million in turnover, and received additional investment to the sum of £82.47 million. In the last round of Scottish EDGE, cash prizes of £1 million were shared amongst forty winners across four different categories.

The exciting and fun final is split in two, with a day-time pitching event, and an evening awards ceremony. The daytime event offers the chance to watch this year’s Scottish EDGE finalists pitch for up to £150,000 in front of an expert panel of judges.

The finalists will be announced in early November following the Scottish EDGE semifinals. For the six hundred expected attendees, the event also offers the opportunity to meet and learn from a variety of Scottish businesses and entrepreneurial support organisations in the Exhibitor Atrium.

The event will also include keynotes from high profile guest speakers which, in the past, have included philanthropist Sir Tom Hunter, Duncan Logan of RocketSpace, BrewDog founder James Watt, and Street Soccer Scotland founder, David Duke.
