Our generous sponsors donated a total prize fund of £8,000 of cash prizes as well as accountancy and legal packages offered by Johnston Carmichael and Harper Macleod LLP. 

Shortlisting took place on 30th April with the finalists invited to pitch to our judges on 22nd May 2024 and from there the judges made their final decisions with the winners  announced at our finals event that evening.  

Our judges listened to all the pitches and had a difficult job choosing winners for each of our prize categories and it was down to the wire to have the certificates prepared for the evening presentation.

Our prizes included -

  • Top Prize of £1,000 along with accountancy and legal packages
  • Best Student Award 
  • Best Social Impact
  • Best Commercial
  • Best Tech Idea
  • Best Engineer
We also had prizes awarded to -
  • Youth Entrepreneurship
  • Best Use of Technology
  • Best Researched and
  • Most Innovative.
Our evening started with our stallholders and a 2-course meal before heading through to the lecture theatre to listen to our Keynote Speaker - Debbie Strang, founder Director and Chief Operating Officer of SaxaVord before moving on to the prizegiving.
