In what has been a hugely competitive round of finals and semi-finals, it was the turn this week of twenty-one young entrepreneurs to pitch to a panel of expert judges in the round eleven Young EDGE final.
In keeping with our Wild Card EDGE finalists and Scottish EDGE semi-finalists, the standard of pitching was exceptionally high and made the task of selecting the winners especially difficult for the panel.
What an intense two weeks of EDGE of your seat vote campaigning that was!
Three worthy contenders, Adelie Health, AS D-Zine and lil’POP were shortlisted from the 13 winning businesses of the Wild Card EDGE Round 11 Final by its expert panel of judges to take part in an online public vote.
After an extensive countrywide search, twenty of Scotland’s most innovative startup businesses have been selected from over 240 applicants to pitch for up to £150,000 in funding and support at the Scottish EDGE Round 11 Final.
During a packed day of pitching, eleven Scottish startup businesses pitched their way to a winning position in the Scottish EDGE Round Eleven Wild Card EDGE Final.
Designed to boost pre-trading businesses on their startup journey in Scotland, Wild Card EDGE winners receive up to £10,000 in grant funding. Businesses will also receive a non-financial business support package, provided by Scottish EDGE’s various partner organisations.
