Startup Summit 2019 (Edinburgh, United Kingdom)

October 30

£25 – £120

Recognized over the last eight years as one of the UK’s leading events for entrepreneurship, Startup Summit provides a true immersion into the world of business and beyond. In the center of one of the world’s most innovative cities, we invite the next generation of entrepreneurs to engage with experts, build a network and gain valuable tools for long-term success.

Startup Summit is a deep-dive into the world of business for the generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders. Combining practical workshops, expert insights on how some of the largest companies in the world came to be, and a packed agenda of inspiring talks from international speakers, Startup Summit has built a strong reputation as one of the UK’s leading events for startups. Previous speakers have included executives from SurveyMonkey, Brewdog, Rocketspace, Skyscanner and Atterley, each giving their perspective on the changing face of business.

What’s the main theme of the event?

The event addresses the three core tracks in growing and scaling a business: process, performance and people. Founders and business leaders should leave with a comprehensive idea of what their business needs to thrive in all three categories. There is also a focus on network and connection, driven by a belief that businesses will grow faster, and more sustainably, when they are part of a supportive community.

How does it differentiate from other major tech events in Europe?

Startup Summit is unique in its attitude towards growing the businesses of tomorrow. A carefully curated agenda is designed by the team at FutureX, who believe that purpose-driven businesses will play a key role in a prosperous economic and social landscape of the future. Startup Summit gives founders a toolkit for growth, but also offers pathways and ideas for creating businesses that put values at the very core of their work.

What kind of audience are you targeting, from which countries specifically?

Startup Summit welcomes individuals from all over Europe, but primarily sees interest from people in the UK, Germany and France, where startup ecosystems are growing rapidly. Bringing over speakers from Silicon Valley opens up a new world of insight and connects entrepreneurs directly with their long-term ambition.

How does it differentiate from other major tech events in Europe?

Unlike many startup events, Startup Summit is affordable and accessible for entrepreneurs at every stage of their growth journey. Content is split across three stages, allowing attendees to curate their own experience.
