Scottish EDGE, the UK’s largest funding competition, launches its next round today with an all new online application portal, accessible at scottishedge.com. Applications to Scottish EDGE Round 11 will be accepted
through the application portal until Wed, 6th September 2017 at 2pm, requiring a completed application and a short video pitch. All entries will then be assessed by a number of independent, expert panels before being shortlisted to participate
in a Scottish EDGE semi-final or the final of our subsidiary competition categories, namely Young EDGE or Wild Card EDGE.
With just under a week until the launch of Scottish EDGE Round 11 on 31st July (that’s right, a week!), we wanted to share some important and exciting changes and updates that we’ll be introducing from this round onwards.
The Scottish EDGE competition has evolved significantly since its inception in 2013. Our 263 winners from rounds one to ten, who have collectively won almost £10 million in prize money, have thus far generated an additional £57.23 million in turnover, secured £55.17 million in additional investment, and created 981 jobs.
If you are considering applying for Scottish EDGE in Round 11, then be sure to come along to one of our workshops – kindly hosted by some of our supporting organisations in locations throughout Scotland. You’ll find out what makes a strong Scottish EDGE application, what the judging panel look for when assessing your application and how to deliver a 3-minute video presentation. The workshops are delivered by the Scottish EDGE team and experts from within Scotland’s entrepreneurial eco-system and could be the first step in your Scottish EDGE journey to winning funding of up to £100,000.
