Scottish EDGE Round 10 Now Open

Are you an innovative, high growth potential, Scottish-headquartered business?  Then apply now for Scottish EDGE Round 10 which launches today.  Applications will be accepted through the competition website until 8th March, 2017 at 2pm, requiring an application form and a short video pitch. All entries will 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 Higgs EDGE, Young EDGE or Wild Card EDGE. Prizes of up to £150,000 will be awarded at a full day pitching final and an awards ceremony on 22nd June 2017.

To date, 234 businesses have received the sought-after Scottish EDGE award, and our alumni have generated an additional £45.06m in turnover, secured £44.12m in additional investment, and created 818 jobs. Since its inception in 2013, Scottish EDGE has demonstrated that offering Scottish start-up businesses some essential funding and support can have a significant impact on business success.

We’re also hosting a number of workshops throughout the country with our partner organisations, during which you’ll find out what makes a strong Scottish EDGE application, what the judging panel look for 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. Find a time and location that suits you here.

So, what are you waiting for? Applications are open until 8th March 2017 at 2pm. For full details on the competitions, eligibility and to apply, visit our website at
