It wasn’t long after our official opening at the start of March that we began to think about the next stages of expansion. The level of interest has been overwhelming and since opening we’ve doubled in size, filling another full floor of Argyle House with 20 exciting tech companies such as Reloaded Inc., TVSquared, Flexiant and Speech Graphics. This now makes us the largest tech incubator in the UK and the fastest growing in Europe.
In the last quarter two of our tenants, Zonefox and Outplay Entertainment have each raised significant rounds of investment: Zonefox £450,000 from Business Angels and the Scottish Investment Bank while Outplay Entertainment raised $5m from Oxford Capital Partners. Not only is this a great success for both companies, but it’s also a clear indication of the huge potential for growth within the Scottish startup community and we’re sure it’s a sign of great things to come!
We're delighted to announce that CodeBase has been shortlisted for the New Business of the Year Award by the Scottish Business Awards, just two weeks after our official launch. It's great to see so many of our friends listed amongst the amazing businesses, good luck to y'all!
What an incredible day! The First Minister Alex Salmond declared CodeBase officially open. During his visit the First Minister was introduced to Code First Girls who were running a taster session for their Code & Create Weekend course at the end of March, after which he met with members of Kotikan, Float, eoSurgical, Confbuzz, Peekabu and Rightscale.
