About EIE London
Since May 2008, Informatics Ventures’ flagship investor conference Engage Invest Exploit (EIE) in Edinburgh has con­nected young Scottish companies with UK and international investors including corporate venturers, venture capitalists, business angel syndicates and high net worth individuals. These connections have been a springboard to over £100 million in investment.

In November 2012, EIE London was launched to showcase 12 early-stage, promising Scottish companies hand­picked from EIE Edinburgh to a select group of London-based investors. Many of these companies have been remark­able success stories, – from FanDuel to Celtic Renewables, Kotikan and Mall­zee to mention a few – and EIE London has frequently afforded investors the first chance to meet the companies and their founders.

This year, EIE London is set to grow and evolve once more. In association with partner organisations, EIT Digital, UCL Advances and UCLB, EIE London 2015 will showcase 12 outstanding ICT companies with high growth potential not only from Scotland, but the rest of the UK and Europe. Each company will be seeking A round level (≥£1.5 million) funding to scale and grow their busi­nesses, and offers venture capitalists and corporate venturers a highly fo­cused and quality assured event.
