Edinburgh Startups 2.0 logo

Welcome to the first edition of Edinburgh Startups 2.0. 

These 18 founder-led startups are not backed by venture capital. Bootstrapped, pre-seed or angel-backed, the enterprises are in the early stages of their journey and either building or harnessing a unique technology.

We invited nominations from our readers, key figures in Edinburgh’s tech scene and an array of incubators and accelerators.

You can find Glasgow Startups 2.0, also published today, here.

We are running annual Startups 2.0 lists in all major UK cities. To discuss sponsorship, contact the editor Jonathan Symcox at this email address. Options include pitching competitions and roundtables featuring the successful startups.
