We are covering Day 1 of the Investing Women Conference at Our Dynamic Earth live as it happens.
The aim of the first of its kind gathering is to bring together Scottish women entrepreneurs and supporting angel investors.
The conference runs over two days today and tomorrow and this evening at Edinburgh Castle the winner of the pitch for women-led companies, AccelerateHER will be announced. We hope to bring you interviews with all of those who are finalists during the day today.
The entrants have already gone through a gruelling few months to get this far with a video entry and a pitching contest to go through later this morning.
The winner will receive a £5000 cash prize sponsored by Chiene + Tait Accountants who are also offering a comprehensive package of in-kind professional support: £6900 worth of free advice, events and materials.
