On the 12th of May, some of the SIE team headed to Edinburgh for Engage Invest Exploit 2016 – better known as EIE16. The event showcases 50 of Scotland’s most promising early stage tech start-ups, to investors and supporters. Each company has the chance to exhibit, pitch and network with attendees and we were delighted to see that seven SIE supported companies had been selected and were making the most of the day. After a busy day hearing pitches from the exhibiting entrepreneurs, David Rose (Gust) and High Campbell (GP Bullhound) delivered keynote speeches and took time for a Q&A session.
We were delighted to co-host a table with Equity Gap for dinner and have Paul McGinley ( Pyramid Wifi ) & NVC 2016 winner – read more about his big win here),Cameron McNatt ( Mocean Energy ), James McIlory ( EuroBiotix ), and Stephen Spiers as our guests. It was a great opportunity to catch up with all their news including some exciting entrepreneurial updates. We wanted to give them a taster of the event and hope to see them attend as selected exhibitors in the future – maybe even next year!
Following dinner, EIE16 awarded ‘Pitch of the Day’ to our very own MindMate! We are thrilled for Susanne and the team and want to offer big congratulations to them on a wonderful pitch.
