Welcome to EIE!

The EIE Investor Readiness Programme is an intensive preparation for founders and business leaders, providing training which is designed to enable and enhance our cohort’s business, as they seek to understand and explore the options for current and future investment.

EIE culminates at the EIE Conference, where the EIE22 cohort will pitch for investment from Seed to Series A and beyond, to an international gathering of investors.

EIE has helped over 500 companies to raise more than $1.5 Billion in investment. It sits within the Bayes Centre, at the heart of the University of Edinburgh and is a thought leader in Scotland’s tech ecosystem.

EIE is an Official Nominator for The Earthshot Prize, the most prestigious global environment prize in history, designed to incentivise change and help repair our planet over the next ten years. Earthshot Winners will each win £1 million in prize money and the only way to be a part of The Earthshot Prize is to be nominated!

EIE works with a select group of sponsors, who are offered a fantastic range of benefits as part of the sponsorship package. If you’d like to learn more, then please visit our sponsorship page or contact us to discuss the options available.
