New event connects global investors with Scottish scale-ups
A new business event aimed at helping scalable Scottish companies reach their full potential has been launched today. Invest2Scale, being staged on 2 November at Edinburghâ€™s Dovecot Studios, is aiming to address a gap in the market by supporting revenue-generating scalable Scottish companies by connecting them with VCs and other investors.
Invest2Scale will identify between 10-12 company founders who they will invite to participate in their new showcase event.Â The event programme will include networking sessions, industry discussions and other scale-up focused activities and involve an audience of senior figures from both the UK and global investment community.Â Â
Invest2Scale is being led by a group of leading business support organisations - law firm MBM Commercial, accountants Chiene + Tait, recruitment specialists Eden Scott, and Angel Capital Scotland (formerly Linc Scotland) - who are tapping into their networks to attract scale-up experts and other key figures from the investor community to the event.
Companies with a global focus and strong scale up potential are being invited to apply to be part of the Invest2Scale event. More details can be found at: www.invest2scale.comÂ Â
Â Selected companies will be announced in October.Â
Stuart Hendry, Senior Partner at MBM Commercial said:
â€œInvest2Scale addresses a gap in the market by targeting revenue-generating companies with significant scalability.Â It does this in person as there is major value in bringing company founders and investors together in the same venue as opposed to attempting this interaction through online facility. This event is designed to enable strong businesses to progress to a higher level and to lay the foundations in creating the next Scottish unicorn.Â Â Â
â€œWe are passionate about supporting scale-up businesses to help them make the most of global investment opportunities so they can reach their full potential.â€Â
Alan Donald of Angel Capital Scotland said:
â€œOur partnership of highly regarded and well-connected corporate organisations, where we can access key figures within the global investment community through our networks, brings immense value to this event. Collectively we will also leverage our experience and close relationships within Scotlandâ€™s business community to help identify many of the companies that could maximise the impact of additional growth investment.
â€œIn addition to the contribution of the founding partners, through Invest2Scale we will put ambitious high growth Scottish companies with scale-up funding aspirations in front of an invited audience of investors.â€
