Meet the next generation of high-growth startups: 160 founders, 40 investors, no time-wasting

Edinburgh, Scotland | Tuesday 31 July 2018

NextGen is an invitation-only event that connects early-stage investors directly with some of the UK and Ireland's most exciting young companies, in a relaxed and informal setting.

In 2017, we made almost 1,000 new investor/founder intros, welcoming investors from top-tier firms including Notion, Connect, Episode1, Hoxton and BGF. For 2018, we're delighted to team up with our friends at Silicon Valley Bank UK to help savvy investors find deal flow, and ambitious businesses find the funding partners to help them succeed.

Bottom line: NextGen offers an unmissable opportunity to connect with some fantastic founders, take in the best tech conference happening in the UK this summer — and spend a little time relaxing at the incomparable Edinburgh festivals!



Your time is valuable, so attendance on both sides is by invitation only. We carefully screen each participating company to keep quality high, and to ensure filtered and tailored meetings.


To make sure you get to talk to the right people, we scout ambitious product companies who are proactively fundraising early-stage capital (seed to A+)

Candid conversation

This isn't a pitch competition: this is an opportunity for you to have informal, private conversations with smart founders.
