Who’s Eligible

The Scottish Tech Startup Awards recognise companies building and deploying technology — whether software or hardware — to disrupt existing industries or forge new markets. 

Eligible companies will generally meet at least two of the following criteria:

  • They have been operating for fewer than than 10 years

  • They have less than £10m in annual revenue

  • They have raised less than £10m in investment capital

  • They have fewer than 100 employees


The Awards are only open to companies and individuals who are primarily based in Scotland — for individuals, this means ordinarily resident and primarily working in Scotland; for companies and organisations, this means headquartered in Scotland.
