Krucial (formerly R3 IoT) rewarded by Scottish EDGE with £100,000 share of the prize pot.
The highest share of a £1million+ prize pot was awarded to Krucial Co-Founders Allan Cannon and Kevin Quillien at the Scottish EDGE Round 14 awards ceremony.
Prior to the awards announcement, Scottish entrepreneur Sir Tom Hunter addressed the finalists. “It’s fantastic to support Scottish EDGE; the businesses that come through EDGE grow faster with less risk because EDGE is not just about money, but the embedded support on offer,” said Hunter.
“EDGE businesses are the lifeblood of the Scottish economy and we are delighted to support you as you grow and prosper – Scotland needs many more like you.”
A host of technology companies won accolades on the night, with each of the winners taking home a share of overall prize pot, and Krucial taking the largest prize on the night.
The winning businesses came from 37 multi-sector finalists, shortlisted from more than 280 applicants who pitched their business idea live at Glasgow’s Technology and Innovation Centre and Edinburgh’s RBS Conference Centre on the 28th and 30th May 2019.
