Why EIE?

We recognise that EIE is the premier investment event in the UK and are proud to be a sponsor. Our work in the entrepreneurial and angel investment space is deep rooted in our culture. From our work with investors, encouraging investment across Scotland and the UK, to our support in the startup, entrepreneurial and business growth space, our team of experts have fostered a space where clients are treated with respect and their ambitions understood.

Neil Norman, Head of Entrepreneurial Tax comments:

“We are very much looking forward to working with EIE, the selected cohort of companies and investors this year and in the future.

We are keen to demonstrate our support of the investment ecosystem, particularly at a time of great change; the investments we make this year could have far reaching implications for future generations particularly in the areas of artificial intelligence and environmental impact. We understand the importance of supporting Scotland’s tech sector where there is strong growth potential – this is hugely significant as we emerge from Covid and confront new economic challenges including adapting to the post-Brexit environment.”

Scotland provides an ideal ecosystem for tech businesses to thrive – initiatives like EIE connect emerging companies with the investors; there’s a vibrant investment community including several business angel groups which have a long track record in supporting tech firms. Edinburgh has also been named as the UK’s top city for starts up, attracting more foreign investment than any other UK tech cluster with 92% growth potential (according to Tech Nation magazine). It’s little wonder that Scotland has produced many successful tech businesses.
