KPMG begins search for Scotland's top tech innovator



KPMG has launched its annual competition searching for Scotland’s top tech innovator.

The previous winners include Echo and What3Words.

The competition is open to scale-up businesses from early stage to accelerated growth, which are invited to pitch their innovations and present their ambitions to panels of local and global experts in June.

Last year’s Scottish winners were Edinburgh-based Cyan Forensics, Intelligent Growth Solutions from Invergowrie, and Glasgow’s Clinspec Diagnostics.

The winners will be provided with exclusive networking opportunities among industry experts, their peers and other tech innovators, as well as being invited to pitch at a UK-wide event in London.

The UK winner will join fellow entrepreneurs from around the world progressing to the global tech innovator final at the Web Summit 2021 in Lisbon in November.

Amy Burnett, KPMG’s private enterprise senior manager in Scotland, said: “Our search for Scotland’s top tech innovators aims to shine a light on some of the country’s most exciting future leaders, developing brands that will become household names in the future and help to transform the Scottish economy into a world leader in technology and entrepreneurialism.”

Bina Mehta, UK chair and head of emerging giants at KPMG in the UK, added: “We are very excited that the competition is now going global, as we look to support the continued growth of the top tech innovators who are either hidden gems in our huge tech ecosystem or leading the way in disruption and innovative thinking.”
