Just in time for the launch of applications for round nine, we’re launching a refreshed Scottish EDGE brand and new website, designed by our newly appointed creative partner, MadeBrave. The rebrand, which includes a refreshed logo to reflect a more modern approach to its design, was undertaken by the Glasgow-based design and branding agency who, as part of the new partnership, will also offer Scottish EDGE winning businesses a range of services as part of the competition’s non-financial support package.
Britain’s biggest business competition, Scottish EDGE, is offering Scotland’s entrepreneurial businesses the chance to pitch for up to £150,000 in funding and support. As of today, businesses are able to apply for the competition’s ninth round, with a total prize fund of £1.3 million available. To date, 205 businesses have received the coveted Scottish EDGE award, generating 641 Scottish jobs, producing an additional £31.80 million in turnover, and receiving £28.36 million in external investment as a result of the fund’s support.
Are you considering applying for Scottish EDGE Round 9? Then come along to one of our workshops to 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 experts from the entrepreneurial eco-system and the Scottish EDGE team and could be the first step in your Scottish EDGE journey to winning £150,000.
