About this event

SG Scotland x SWURF Presents: End of Year Ecosystem Mixer

For our final event of 2022, we wanted to mix things up a bit and provide a fun space for catching up with old friends, making new ones and seeing out the year in style.

It's been quite the year for all of us and at Startup Grind Scotland we’ve loved being able to use our platform to bring people together to share ideas, spark conversation and bring a sense of familiarity through the rollercoaster that's been 2022. 

Since January, we've hosted 10+ events with some of the most entertaining and inspiring speakers/startups from Zumo to Krucial, taken 30 startup founders and leaders to Silicon Valley and Helsinki on funded immersive trips and done what we can to showcase the incredible things going on in the Scottish entrepreneurial ecosystem.

We’ll be sitting down for four quickfire interviews to hear from the perspectives of a founder, an investor, ecosystem builders and community champions. We’ll then wrap up with a community open mic to warm us up for an evening of cocktails, mocktails and partying.

Join us at Rooftop 51 @ The Moxy - Edinburgh as we partner with SWURF.

SWURF is an app that helps connect YOU to local bars, hotels and coworking spaces where you can arrive and plug in, no questions asked. Read all about it and download the app HERE.
