Scotland’s only awards programme wholly dedicated to supporting entrepreneurial women was launched in partnership with Edinburgh Business School this week. 

The 2018 AccelerateHER Awards winners will travel to Dubai and California to meet key industry contacts and investors, showcase their business at events and potentially attract investment.

Now entering their third year, the awards are designed to inspire and support more female-led companies in Scotland. The programme provides a great platform for aspiring businesswomen to showcase their companies to an audience of angel investors, commercial advisers and fellow entrepreneurs. To date, more than 300 businesswomen have joined the AccelerateHER community with the 2018 Awards expected to attract an even larger group of entrants.

The awards, organised by Scotland’s only all-female business angel group Investing Women and sponsored by Gareth Williams at Skyscanner, are open to businesswomen whose companies have strong growth potential.

Entrants will initially be asked to submit a video pitch and executive summary via the Investing Women’s website, outlining their business, its ambitions, growth plans and investor potential. Deadline for entries is 28th January 2018.
