Scottish EDGE 2014

I am delighted to support Scottish EDGE which is a Dragon’s Den style competition for ambitious entrepreneurs who wish to grow their businesses.  EDGE stands for “Encouraging Dynamic Growth Entrepreneurs”.   Companies that demonstrate the most potential can win awards of up to £100,000 and access additional support for their business.   I have been involved in the judging round which entailed going through applications and listening to presentations and then judging accordingly.  It was a very intellectually rewarding and inspiring experience.  I am looking forward to the final round of the competition in early December when the finalists will make a pitch to a panel headed up by Sir Tom Hunter, with the winner being announced on the night.  There is also a young EDGE category specifically for those budding entrepreneurs in the 18 to 30 age group.  For more information, I would refer you to the Scottish Enterprise website.
