Startup Summit returns to Edinburgh - secures Barclays as partner

After an international tour that included San Francisco, Berlin and Hong Kong, we're returning to Edinburgh with the Startup Summit on 1st November 2017 to celebrate Scotland’s vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Inspired by vibrant startup events like Berlin’s Tech Open Air, we want to make Edinburgh a go-to European capital for entrepreneurs. With over 1000 people expected to attend, this year’s Startup Summit will have a festival-feel, feature three headline stages and speakers such as Brewdog cofounder James Watt.

Marking the summit's sixth year, we have signed exclusive partnerships with Barclays and angel capital association LINC Scotland, which will help turn Startup Summit into the premier event for startup entrepreneurs across the country.

Every major startup hub on the planet has a startup festival and it’s about time Scotland does as well. We’re excited to sign a major partnership with Barclays and LINC Scotland who are throwing their weight behind the summit and bringing expertise at every stage of growth for entrepreneurs.

Stuart Brown, Head of SME at Barclays said “Barclays is passionate about helping businesses. We launched a High Growth relationship team to specifically address the gap in Scotland’s scale-ups, supporting entrepreneurs across their journey, from startup to IPO. The Startup Summit plays a valuable role in backing entrepreneurs and we’re pleased to be part of it, helping founders to take their business to the next level.”

David Graeme, Executive Director at LINC Scotland said "The angel community is a key building block in Scotland’s thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem and we’re excited to get behind the Startup Summit, which gives entrepreneurs access to many of the resources they need to succeed."
