New business event Invest2Scale aims to support Scottish scaleups by introducing them to investors and VCs based across the UK and beyond.

A new, in-person business event aimed at supporting the best scale-up companies in Scotland has just been launched in Edinburgh. Led by a group of leading business support organisations, Invest2Scale will help revenue-generating scalable Scottish companies which are ready for high-level growth by providing them with direct access to investors and VCs.

Invest2ScaleEvent_Identity_WIP2A selected group of 10-12 company founders will be invited to participate in a showcase event on 2 November at Edinburgh’s Dovecot Studios.  Invest2Scale will involve an audience of senior figures from the UK and global investment community and feature networking sessions, industry discussions and other scale-up focused activities.

The Invest2Scale event has been conceived by a group of leading corporate players: law firm MBM Commercial, accountants Chiene + Tait, recruitment specialists Eden Scott, and Angel Capital Scotland (formerly Linc Scotland). Through their networks, the founding partners will bring scale-up experts and other key figures from the UK and international investor community to the event.

Scalable companies with strong growth aspirations are being invited to apply to be part of the event. More details can be found at:  

Companies which are selected to attend Invest2Scale will be announced in October. 

The companies behind Invest2Scale are also in discussion with a number of key sponsors and will announce further details of these in the next few weeks. 

Invest2Scale-120822-Image6Stuart Hendry, Senior Partner at MBM Commercial said: “Invest2Scale addresses a gap in the market by targeting revenue-generating companies with significant scalability.  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.   

“We are passionate about supporting scale-up businesses to help them make the most of global investment opportunities so they can reach their full potential.” 

Alan Donald of Angel Capital Scotland said: “Our 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 Scotland’s business community to help identify many of the companies that could maximise the impact of additional growth investment.

“In 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.” 

If you're a Scottish startup and not quite at the scaleup stage, the upcoming Digital DNA event in Glasgow might be right up your street. Here's your chance to win a pod at the event to showcase what you're all about.
