Scottish startups Snook and NoTosh have partnered to create StramashLabs: a new platform to help broker conversations between the technology industries and business from across Scotland’s other industries. Stramash has been supported by Scottish Enterprise and the Scottish Government.
We are looking for people with ideas, ideas that could change the world and ideas that link tech and business together in a valuable way throughout Scotland.
We need you to form a team – big or small.
You must have:
1. an idea
2. someone who can build your idea
3. a partner from industry outside tech and digital
And then all you have to do is submit your idea online.
If you impress the judges you could win an amazing prize of worth over £20,000, ranging from business development, marketing and pitching advice, to help turn your idea to a reality.
You’re probably thinking “What should I submit?”
Well, we have some ideas:
a) You could build a digital app that helps the food and drink sector reach new customers
b) You could design a range of textiles that charge the products the wearer carries
c) You could create an app that helps you measure how much electricity you are using
d) You could make an app for the financial sector that helps you measure how much you spend
e) You could manufacture a product that enables you to survey your own home
We have a range of partners from different sectors who want to work with you. Here they are:
Bit stuck? Don’t worry we have a plan! We are holding StramashLab events over the next six weeks in a city near you.
We’ve already found scores of mentors to share their expertise and experience with you, with more joining StramashLabs every day.
So sign up for a StramashLab and float your idea before you go, form a team with an industry partner and a geek and present your idea to the judges.
If you need more time to think of an idea and form a team you have until 5pm on the 19th March!
What are you waiting for? This is your chance to put Scotland on the map.
Stop dreaming. Start Doing.
