What does EIE look like?

Pre-conference networking:

EIE is all about making connections and building your pipeline.

On the evening of Wednesday 18th April, investors are invited to attend an exclusive drinks reception aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia the evening before the conference. Here you will have the opportunity to build relationships with local investors and explore syndicate possibilities.

Entrepreneurs and corporate guests alike can start networking over a drink or two whilst taking in the sights of the historical city centre on our pub trail.

Conference Day:

On Thursday 19th April, the Scottish tech scene will convene in the historic McEwan Hall, a building at the heart of the University of Edinburgh which has seen many an innovator tread its boards.

Over the course of the day EIE18 will showcase 60 high growth, data-driven innovative tech companies pitching for seed, to series A, funding. Companies are pre-selected from the following sectors:
