Scottish EDGE, the UK's BIGGEST small business funding competition, is delighted to invite you to the Round 15 Higgs EDGE Final.

Taking place on 28th Nov at 10am until 2.30pm, at the Royal Bank of Scotland’s Business School, Gogarburn, Edinburgh, the Round 15 Higgs Final will showcase eight of Scotland's most innovative, up-and-coming STEM Sector startups, each pitching to a specialist panel for the chance to secure up to £150,000 in cash and an all-encompassing business support package.




Having completed 14 successful rounds, Scottish EDGE – which is supported by the Royal Bank of Scotland, the Hunter Foundation, the Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise - has awarded over £14 million to over 369 Scottish businesses. In the last round of Scottish EDGE, cash prizes of over £1 million were shared amongst just under forty winners across four different competition categories.

This round, the Live Pitching Final will run over two days, with the 28th Nov Higgs EDGE Final preceding the 3rd Dec Scottish EDGE Final.

Higgs EDGE is a special STEM-focused award within the Scottish EDGE category and carries the competition’s largest potential prize amount of up to £150,000 (40/60 grant/loan split). This separate Final will present the opportunity for those businesses to pitch to a specialist panel before an invited audience of approx 50 guests, with fully-catered networking sessions.

The carefully selected judging panel represents key professionals from the sector and consists of Sharon McKendry of SDI, Poonam Malik of University of Edinburgh, Paul Winstanley of CENSIS, Alix Makay of Alix Makay Marketing and Toby Reid of MediCity.

The winning businesses will be announced at the Round 15 Evening Awards Ceremony on 3rd December at RBS Conference Centre, immediately following the Scottish EDGE Live Final.

We hope you can join us for this sure-to-be inspiring event!
