CivTech 4.0: Solve a problem, build a business

20 June @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm, CivTech Studio, Argyle House, 3 Lady Lawson Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9DR

In the landscape of digital innovation, what opportunities and challenges does the public sector hold for talented SMEs?

These engaging sessions offer an ideal setting for start-ups, SMEs and entrepreneurs to learn about the Scottish Government Digital Directorate’s award-winning CivTech® Programme. Come along to one of our events to see how you can solve a problem and build a business while delivering better, faster and easier public services.

Founder and Programme Head Alexander Holt will talk you through the distinctive CivTech process and launchpad to public sector innovation. You will also hear from some of the talented companies who won contracts in previous cohorts, offering their insight into how they were funded to solve a challenge and build a successful business on the back of it.

Lastly, you will get a preview of the CivTech 4.0 Challenges! We can’t release the full details just yet, but you’ll get a flavour of the problem areas we are planning for another exciting cohort.
