Dr Steve Ewing, Director of Operations at Informatics Ventures, said: “EIE continues to be about making connections that can translate to investment and other business opportunities for our most exciting young technology companies. Scotland has been exporting innovative technologies across the world for centuries and in 2018 we have some amazing talent coming through. While we’re starting to see the real emergence of sectors like AI and Healthtech, it’s also encouraging to see the level of female founders in the EIE18 cohort.”
