The StartUp Awards National Series attracted and highlighted an incredible number of dynamic and passionate startups across the nation. Delivered by the wonderful team at Great British Entrepreneur Awards and Wales Start-Up Awards, this important competition is the only regional awards celebrating new businesses in the UK at present. Over the past weeks, Russell Dalgleish has been honoured to participate in the judging process and congratulates all the finalists, in particular the overall Scottish winner Andrew Flynn of POTR.

POTR provides flat-pack self-watering plant pots made from 100% recycled materials. The origami inspired design allows the pots to be easily delivered through your letterbox, cutting down the carbon footprint associated with transport.

This inaugural event in Glasgow saw 23 awards given! The full list of which can be found below.

"I would encourage you to reach out and connect with these innovation leaders of the future. Professionally organised and attracting a superb selection of Scottish talent I must congratulate Professor Dylan Jones-Evans OBE and the team." - Russell Dalgleish, Judge in the StartUp Awards Scotland Series
