The McEwan Hall, Edinburgh was last week’s venue for Informatics Ventures’ showcase event EIE19.
Since its inception, EIE has provided a platform for 400 tech startups and spinouts who have raised in excess of £650 million in funding – a mind blowing sum!
I worked intensively with all 50 companies whether they were delivering 1 minute spotlight pitches or 6 minute pitch presentations followed by intensive Q&A with the panel of judges from organisations such as Scottish Investment Bank, IBM Venture Capital Group and McAfee Capital. The quality of the pitching was truly outstanding this year. My particular congratulations to Callum Murray of Amiqus Resolution who won EIE Pitch of the Day and Kevin Davidson of The Property Angel who won the Spirit of EIE award.
