    The Startup Summit has become one of the leading platforms to communicate directly with startups and scaleup entrepreneurs. Small businesses account for 99% of the business ecosystem and we represent that community at the Startup Summit.


    From high tech innovations to early stage ventures many of Scotland's entrepreneurs will pass through the Startup Summit before engaging the wider ecosystem.

    Startup Summit has consistently been ranked within the top 5 entrepreneurship events in the UK, recognition of the thought leadership role that it play for entrepreneurs and corporations.


    The summit brings all the resources businesses need in one venue. From the inspirational role models, to the lawyers, accountants, banks, investors and advisers that all contribute to the success of business ventures.


    It takes a village to raise a startup.

  • Long lasting relationships.

    The SUS After Party is where business connections turn to friendships. After a day of incredible speakers, curated content and many business cards swapped, we head to one of Edinburgh most atmospheric venues, The Caves.


    Buried deep in the Edinburgh vaults - a UNESCO world heritage site - underneath South Bridge, the venue has been painstakingly refurbished and is now recognised as one of the most unique and spectacular spaces in the city. Come and join us for an evening of drinks and conversations, with some of Edinburgh's best DJ's as your soundtrack.
