As part of our ongoing efforts to make the Turing Festival the country's premier technology business event, we're excited to unveil a new fringe event at Turing 2016.

Turing Founders is a private event that will bring together Scotland's top startup founders and CEOs with some of the UK's leading early-stage VCs. 

Founders are invited to join this select group on the evening of Thursday 18 August at our Turing 2016 venue, Central Hall, for a candid VC panel discussion and Q&A over drinks, followed by an informal networking dinner.

The event is free, but is only open to Turing Festival attendees. Spaces are strictly limited in order to maintain a high founder/investor ratio, and are allocated by invitation. We want to create a relaxed, informal environment for entrepreneurs building the next generation of high-growth tech businesses in Scotland to connect with investors who are actively looking for those opportunities.

If you're an ambitious founder or CEO of a scalable product company in Scotland, can you afford to miss this opportunity in your own backyard? 

Applications will close at 5pm on Wednesday 17th August.
