More than 3,000 delegates are expected to attend the Turing Fest tech conference in Edinburgh next week.

The event, which comes to the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on August 28-29, will welcome some of the world’s leading tech entrepreneurs, investors and startups.

And Turing Founders will bring together 50 seed and series-A investors with around 150 early stage company founders at an invitation-only event at the Sheraton Grand Hotel on Tuesday, 27 August. 

With only a few spots remaining: founders and early-stage execs can apply here to attend and gain the opportunity to have individual meetings with 50 seed and series A investors, from Localglobe to Northzone.

Running since 2016 Turing Founders, part of Turing Fest, has connected hundreds of founders and investors, with attendee companies having raised over £35 million to date in subsequent investment, and several participating startups having gone on to successful exits…and this year is going to be the biggest yet!

Tom Butterworth, Head of Early Stage, Europe at Silicon Valley Bank’s UK Branch, said: “Turing Fest brings together a diverse audience focusing on starting and scaling great tech businesses, which is at the heart of what we do at Silicon Valley Bank.

“This is incredibly important to growing the innovation economy across all emerging tech hubs in the UK, including Edinburgh. Tech Nation and Dealroom reported earlier this year that three unicorns came out of the Scottish city in the last 12 months, so it is great to see Edinburgh increasingly becoming a technology powerhouse and one that we are committed to continuing to support going forward.”

Turing Fest is supported by Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise and VisitScotland Business Events.
