EIE Sponsorship

Informatics Ventures is located at the heart of The University of Edinburgh, within The School of Informatics and The Bayes Centre, and therefore benefits from a global reach and access to a world class talent pool.

The Informatics Ventures annual Entrepreneur Development and Investor Readiness Programme connects, educates and supports globally ambitious Data Driven technology companies. Through practitioner-led entrepreneurship, education and ecosystem networking, Informatics Ventures prepares and equips technology entrepreneurs with the skills and experience to scale their business and take it to a global stage.

Powered by Informatics Ventures – Engage Invest Exploit (EIE) is our international flagship event for Data Driven Innovation, attracting world class investors to the heart of the aspirational Data Capital of Europe. EIE occupies a unique place in the Data Driven technology ecosystem in Scotland and its reputation for excellence spreads far beyond. It is the longest running and largest programme of its kind outside London, attracting start-ups, scale-ups and technology investors from all over the UK and internationally.

Informatics Ventures was at the genesis of the technology ecosystem in Scotland and currently occupies pole position as an international thought leader at the cutting edge of data-centric innovation. Since its inception in 2008, companies who have participated in the IV Programme have gone on to raise in excess of £650 million, from seed through to Series A and later stage funding.

Informatics Ventures would be delighted to have you on board as a Sponsor for EIE2020. Your organisation would benefit from an unparalleled exposure both in the lead up to and during the event. This would allow your organisation to highlight its position as a market leader and afford premium presence and visibility before, during and after the event.
