Elizabetta Camilieri - Cofounder & CEO Sales Gossip

SalesGossip is an online and mobile service which allows:

• End users to find out about ANY promotion going on in their favourite shops as soon as it is on.
• Shops to communicate their sales and promotions effectively to a targeted audience, increasing traffic and revenues in their stores.

Delegates will hear from inspirational speakers, see a live pitching competition, hear from a panel of experts and have the opportunity to attend a range of case study led educational seminars including Crowd funding, Pitching, and Growth Finance for early stage businesses.

This event will be of valuable experience to entrepreneurs, as they get the chance to learn from a wide range of experts and build a network that can help fuel their high-potential growth for years to come.

It will also be a great chance for individuals to meet entrepreneurs and potentially create mentoring links with those who catch their eye.  Entrepreneurs from a wide range of exciting businesses in many different industries can learn from those who have been successful in growing businesses - there is bound to be an opportunity to get involved with these start-up and high growth businesses.

In addition to learning from our keynote speakers, delegates will have the opportunity to quiz a panel, influencers from the Scotland Business Eco System on all things business including finance, leadership and building teams.

As part of the programme, we also have an interactive pitching competition for 5 of Scotland's best entrepreneurs, with a chance to win 'money can't buy prizes' donated by out corporate partners. The audience will become the judge for the day and decide their winner by text voting.

You will see the eco system in action in the exhibition and networking area over the breaks and lunch - you will have the opportunity to learn about the support available for start up and growing businesses as well as help entrepreneurs validate their products and services!
