Informatics Ventures to lead Biggest Investor Showcase in Scotland

Informatics Ventures will double the size of its annual flagship event, Engage Invest Exploit (EIE) following partnership deals struck with the Edinburgh BioQuarter and the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI).

The event, on 9 May next year, will be attended by more than 100 investors from the UK, Europe and the United States and, for the first time, there will be more than 60 technology companies from across Scotland exhibiting across the energy, informatics, and life science sectors.

We welcome the BioQuarter and the ECCI as our partners. It is great to have them on board and they will play a huge part in the future success and growth of EIE.
