Frog Systems has been named as one of five semi finalists in this year’s Start Up Summit competition.
The annual competition, organised by Business support group FutureX, showcases Scottish tech for good businesses, and this year attracted applications from over 100 start ups.
Given the uncertian times caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the organisers were moved to state that this level of applications highlights the “incredible resilience and adaptability” of entrepreneurs in Scotland.
Start Up Summit co-founder Zoi Kantounatou said: “It’s more important than ever to support entrepreneurs in their journey. Seeing so many companies utilise technology to create a positive change, especially in this year’s context, has been really inspiring and a great reminder that Scottish companies are among the most innovative in the world. We can’t wait to see who will take the stage at Startup Summit to pitch for the top prize.”

CyberShell: a digital platform that provides solutions to ensure security for the software industry.
