“Seeing an event of this size in Edinburgh is mind-blowing,”

Duncan Logan, Founder & CEO of RocketSpace and keynote speaker at EIE17.

May saw the culmination of months of planning, preparing and training for Scotland’s largest technology investor showcase: EIE17.

60 of Scotland’s most promising early-stage tech companies pitched to an audience of investors from the UK, Europe, Asia and North America in order to seek funding ranging from £100k to over £5million.

With a strict time limit of 60 seconds for those in the early stages and 6 minutes followed by investor Q&A for those looking to take their product to the next stage, the stakes were high – and so was the pressure!

I was delighted to work with all of the companies delivering 1-minute spotlight pitches and to offer support to those delivering pitch presentations. The standard was exceptionally high this year – it’s so gratifying to support such an enthusiastic group.

What an event and what a buzz! Congratulations to the team at Informatics Ventures on producing an incredible event, right on our doorstep. Here’s to EIE18!
