We are very excited to have received the “nod” from the great team at #scottishedge that our project has been one of the few to be awarded a place at the Round 16 wildcard entry Finals.
From over 180 wildcard applicants we are delighted to make the cut and join the last 10 to face the panel virtually on the 2nd September and pitch our project for support.
Scottish start-up funds and the Scottish accelerators, specifically the Natwest Fintech accelerator that we are a part of, offer a vital support network in our community to fund and support all the great fledgling companies in our country.
Without the Scottish Edge, which has provided financial and business support to over 350 businesses in the past , ensuring job creation and pumping resources into start-up ideas, there would be nearly 2000 less jobs in our country. And many more projects would fail in the early incubation stages.
The Wildcard category allows for pre revenue models to begin to compete, fine tune their offering and provide vital seed funds into the economy.
More importantly, the Scottish Edge program begins to introduce the concepts and metrics we generally use for measuring and developing business start-ups and laterally engaging in growth activity.
So please follow us on our journey with Scottish Edge round 16 and support all those companies that are not just winners but entrants, runners up and future winners.
