Edinburgh Web App Scene

I’m in the amazing Marriot Edinburgh Hotel 😉 right now, reflecting on last night’s Road Trip.

I enjoyed meeting everyone and hearing about their startups or jobs. As in London, I was amazed at just how many high quality UK startups there are. Here are a few I met last night:

  1. Free Agent
  2. Groopit
  3. Touristr
  4. XCalibre

Here’s a video of Craig Fairgrieve with some interesting thoughts on SEO for Web Apps:

Road Trip London = Rockin

Wow! We had an amazing crowd last night – probably at least 150 people flooded into the Pitcher & Piano for the London leg of the FOWA Road Trip.

I spoke to over 20 different UK startups, which is tremendously exciting. I believe the UK and European web startup scene continues to strengthen.

Here is just a small sample:

  1. Zebtab
  2. Huddle
  3. PlanQ.mobi
  4. New Way to Date
  5. Vzaar
  6. Intruders.tv
  7. BoxedUp

Here are some of the photos (complete Flickr set) …

The crowd, heating up!

You can also see the video interviews I’m doing while on the road. Apologies for the lack of light in a few of them – bars are dark places!
