We are thrilled to announce that last night, after the final round of an intensive selection process, Safetray Products won a ScotEdge award, including funding of £31,000 for our new product, the G-Hold. Safetray was one of 16 winning companies, chosen from over 190 applicants. Yesterday 21 companies pitched in front of a distinguished panel of judges, chaired by Sir Tom Hunter, with our CEO and inventor Alison Grieve following host Carol Smillie to kick off proceedings first thing in the morning. After some tough questions from the panel, it was a nervous wait until the evening ceremony to find out that we had won.
Thankfully we were able to spend the day watching the brilliant pitches by all the other companies, and being inspired by the drive, talent and innovation on display. It was an incredibly strong group, and we didn't envy the judges when it came to decision time. We've never been more excited to be a part of the Scottish business community, and to take advantage of the mentoring and support on offer to us as winners.
