At the recent EIE13 Conference (Engage, Invest, Exploit 2013) on 9th May 2013 Celtic Renewables was one of 16 companies selected from over 100 applicants to pitch their business proposition to a panel of investors. The pitch was strictly 8 minutes maximum in length and then the investors had 7 minutes to ask follow up questions. The panel of investors and the viewing attendees at the conference then voted for the “Pitch of the Day”, and the Winners Award went to Mark Simmers, CEO of Celtic Renewables. Mark received his award from Scottish Olympic Silver Medallist in 200m Butterfly at the London 2012 Games, Michael Jamieson.
The conference’s objective is to introduce and match innovative Scottish companies with investors, and Celtic Renewables received strong interest from the investor community present at the event.
