Description

Scottish EDGE, Scotland’s leading competition to identify and support the nation’s most promising entrepreneurial talent, has once again joined forces with Creative Scotland and Cultural Enterprise Office to encourage applications from the creative sector via the Creative EDGE special award.

The Creative EDGE Award Award is a prize of up to £100,000 – 60% loan and 40% grant – which will be presented to the top creative business idea to enter in Round 12 of the Scottish EDGE competition.

Introduction of Creative EDGE in Round 11 resulted in a 145% increase in Creative Industry applications and was the second highest sector represented at the application stage.

This event has been organised by the Creative EDGE partners for the creative sector but also welcomes all sectors interested in learning more about the Scottish EDGE competition and its application process.

If you are an innovative entrepreneur working in any of the categories listed below, this workshop could be your first step to securing up to £100,000 for your business.

Recognised Creative Industries List:
Advertising, architecture, visual art, crafts, fashion and textiles, design, performing arts, music, photography, film and video, computer games, radio and TV, writing and publishing, heritage, software/electronic publishing, cultural education.

The workshop will be presented by experts from Scottish EDGE and the Creative EDGE partner organisations, who will also be on hand to answer any further queries you may have. Scottish EDGE launched Round 12 on 31st January, with the application window closing at 2 pm on 7th March and the final planned for 29th May - followed by an awards ceremony on 14th June, where up to £1 million in grant and loan funding will be awarded to around thirty Scottish startups. Scottish EDGE itself is supported by the Royal Bank of Scotland, The Hunter Foundation and the Scottish Government.
