Home to Skyscanner and Fanduel, Edinburgh is now the UK’s largest hub for data-centric tech start-up and spin-out companies outside London, ahead of Oxford and Cambridge. EIE occupies a unique place in the Data Driven technology ecosystem in Scotland and its reputation for excellence spreads far beyond.

Since inception in 2008, companies who have participated in EIE have gone on to raise in excess of £700million, from seed through to Series A and later stage funding.

This year's event EIE20 takes place online, and will be just as good as the real world event. We have an intuitive and highly visual interface, great tech start-ups, investors, and the chance to network with a truly global audience. Why not come along to our inaugural virtual event on 14 October 2020 to see the data-driven start-ups of the future?
