Ed­in­burgh in fo­cus as top Euro­pean tech hub

The Scotsman - - Business - By SCOTT REID

Ed­in­burgh has been sin­gled out as a Euro­pean tech hub hotspot ahead of an event next week that will bring to­gether some of the na­tion’s top founders and chief ex­ec­u­tives.

GP Bull­hound, one of Europe’s top in­vest­ment and ad­vi­sory firms, high­lighted the cap­i­tal ahead of a dis­cus­sion cen­tred around one of its lat­est re­ports – “Ti­tans of Tech: Europe’s Flag­ship Com­pa­nies”.

Next week’s event will exam- ine the op­por­tu­ni­ties for Scot­land’s most promis­ing tech­nol­ogy busi­nesses in 2018 and the years ahead.

GP Bull­hound’s man­ag­ing part­ner, Hugh Camp­bell, said: “I at­tended the EIE in­vestor con­fer­ence in Ed­in­burgh last May and it’s no­tice­able how the tech scene here has de­vel­oped since then, high­lighted by the Skyscan­ner exit.”

He added: “At the ear­lier stage of the in­vest­ment cy­cle, it’s still the case that Scot­land has one of the most de­vel­oped and so­phis­ti­cated an­gel net­works in Europe.”
