Scottish EDGE is a Dragon’s Den style competition designed to identify and support Scotland’s most innovating, high-growth potential entrepreneurial talent.
The team here at HubSolv were thrilled to win a Scottish Young EDGE award for our thoughtfully designed software for the personal insolvency industry. The award was received at the Scottish EDGE awards dinner on Friday 12th June at RBS Gogarburn; it was a thrilling event with fantastic ideas and inspiring speakers.
The Young EDGE award, granted by Scot EDGE to the most promising firms and businesses with Directors aged 18 to 30, consists of a financial grant to support business development; along with much valued feedback and industry mentorship.
We attended a workshop arranged by Scot EDGE at Entrepreneurial Spark in Glasgow, which was massively helpful for organising our winning video pitch, which was prepared a grand total of 4 hours prior to the deadline (living on the EDGE?). Putting ourselves up in front of established entrepreneurs was a nerve-wracking experience, but it was a fantastic chance to take a deep dive into our product, competitors, the industry and to analyse our chances of success.
Since celebrating our own Scot EDGE big win, we have been developing our software to offer solutions to the whole insolvency industry and for the lending market. Our users range from insolvency practitioners, to introducers, debt management and lending firms, and we keep expanding our client base.
