Our roundup of Glasgow Tech Week 2024



Today (17th May 2024), marks the last day of our articles for Glasgow Tech Week. Our entrepreneurial team has attended multiple events throughout the week, seeing faces old and new across the Scottish technology sector ecosystem here in Glasgow. Here’s our roundup of the week:


  • Paula Skinner attended the ScaleUp Britain – Coming to Scotland, event at the Technology and Innovation Centre at the University of Strathclyde. The event focused on the current funding landscape, and options for companies to raise capital in 2024. Paula heard from multiple experts on scaling businesses.


  • Rachel Miele attended the Amplifying Voices in Tech event hosted by Startup Grind at The Social Hub and heard from an amazing panel about their experiences working in different areas of technology, ranging from vertical farming to beauty robotics. The event promoted important insights into the good, the bad and sometimes ugly experiences of navigating a career in technology.
  • Erin Perrie attended the Enabled by Space event at the University of Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre. There were talks from a range of Glasgow-based companies including M Squared Lasers, Craft Prospect and EOLAS Insight Ltd. The event gave a great insight into the emerging space sector, and it was a fantastic opportunity to learn about the technologies which are advancing Scotland’s presence and capabilities in the sector.


  • Together with Cooper Parry, Foresight Group and Virgin Money, we hosted a Tech Week drinks event. The relaxed and social atmosphere provided an environment for tech-focused founders and specialist advisory teams to connect, share their stories and have an honest conversation about their past experiences, future plans and one of the biggest topics, funding.


  • Paula Skinner and Molly Morgan attended the Glasgow Tech Fest. This was the second year it took place in the Strathclyde Innovation Centre and we heard from a range of business owners and tech-mad entrepreneurs. There was a fascinating fireside chat with Oli Norman, CEO of Glasgow-founded business Itison and a keynote address from television presenter Jason Bradbury. Molly and Sophie Allan then attended the TecTonic Night Summit Event which was held in BaAD in the Barras. This was a fantastic showcase of entrepreneurial spirit, which gave the opportunity for Glasgow-based founders to pitch their businesses in a relaxed environment. We caught up with people we had met during the week, as well as making new connections.

Our entrepreneurial team is passionate about assisting businesses in their journey from early stages, to exit. We know Scotland is producing some of the best startups, and Glasgow Tech Week has been an excellent platform to shine the spotlight on them.

If you met any of the team this week, please don’t hesitate to connect. To carry on the Tech Week conversations, Harper Macleod is hosting a panel discussion on the 6th June focusing on Formedix – one of 2023’s standout exits for a Scottish tech company.
