Startup success story Skyscanner, has come on board as sponsor for SW Edinburgh!
The Edinburgh based, flight search company started up officially back in 2001, and has grown to become the number one flight search engine in Europe. In 2011 they opened a Singapore office to grow in the Asia-Pacific market and they offer flight searches in more than 27 different languages. You can read their story here.
So what will SW Edinburgh entail? On 16-18th November 2012, entrepreneurial developers, designers and marketers will come together to pitch business ideas, form teams and produce product prototypes and business plans which they’ll then present to the rest of the event participants and a specially selected judging panel. Prizes will be awarded to the winner. Judges will be confirmed shortly on the SW Edinburgh website. The event will be held at Summerhall, the creative hub based near the Meadows in Edinburgh.
