“The Higgs EDGE Special Award was won Dr Peter Orrell, who set up MycoNourish as a means of harnessing the power of beneficial microbes to enhance crop production and add value for growers via customised fungi to suit the problem areas of specific crops.”
We are delighted to have won the Higgs Edge Award at Scottish EDGE tonight. We are honoured to be among such a supportive entrepreneurial community here in Scotland, which is by far one of the best ecosystems in the world to start a new company. This quote from Sir Tom Hunter, renowned Scottish entrepreneur and supporter of Scottish EDGE, really sums it the benefits and support that programs like Scottish EDGE provide:
“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.
“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 huge congratulations goes out to all of the winners, and you can read about all the winners in the link below:
A big thanks also goes out to Maryanne Johnston, who’s support helped us to win the Converge ‘Ready Steady Pitch’ event earlier in the year.
“I am so excited and proud to have been chosen as the winner from the 30 Converge Challenge pitches. The training and support we received in the three days leading up to Ready Steady Pitch was immense. The confidence and abilities of everyone who participated has grown enormously and I am looking forward to applying these skills not just throughout the rest of the competition but beyond.” – Peter Orrell, following the elevator pitch competition.
