Scottish EDGE Awards £1.27million to Entrepreneurs

Round 8 of the Scottish EDGE took place on the 20th June 2016 in Edinburgh and we made sure to join them to find out who would win a share of the prize fund!

The day began with 22 entrepreneurs pitching their business idea to a panel of expert judges and the audience. 239 applications were submitted to this round so even getting to the final is an impressive feat. All of the pitches were of a fantastic standard which left the SIE team very impressed.

15 finalists were awarded funding, three of them who are SIE Entrepreneurs and SIE alumni. Huge congratulations to all of the winners particularly to eoSurgical (£100,000), EuroBiotix CIC (£40,000) and Robotical (£60,000).

Winners were also announced for the Higgs EDGE, Wild Card EDGE and Young EDGE. Congratulations to two SIE alumni who were awarded Young EDGE grants of £10,000; Pick Protection and Tipplebox.
