Launch of the 2021 AG Elevate programme

For the fourth consecutive year, high-growth tech companies are invited to apply for the Addleshaw Goddard AG Elevate programme – a unique fast-track legal mentoring scheme.

The programme has been created and is delivered by leading lawyers at Addleshaw Goddard. Chosen companies will benefit from 10 months of free dedicated support from legal professionals. They will also enjoy access to industry networks.

2121 will be slightly different as one third of spaces on the programme have been reserved for businesses with a sustainability focus.


David Anderson, Corporate Partner at Addleshaw Goddard, said:

“It’s now more important than ever to recognise the scale of opportunities tech companies in Scotland bring to the table.  The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the digital innovation within the majority of businesses, making the AG Elevate programme an exciting option for a mass of high growth companies. We expect to see an increase in entries this year as we open the scheme to tech businesses across the board in addition to Fintech businesses specifically, so we’re encouraging relevant firms to get their applications in as soon as possible.

“With our extensive experience in the sector, we are one of the only law firms to offer a dedicated programme of this nature and we’re really looking forward to getting the opportunity to work with more outstanding home-grown talent over the next year.”


Open Banking Reporting (OBR) – a Scottish fintech which provides predictive data analytics to improve decision making benefited from the 2019 scheme.

Applications to the scheme will close in late January 2021 with successful applicants notified at a launch event in late February.  For more information or to apply, visit:
