Want to get involved? What’s new with Company Connecting for 2019

In December 2018 we completed some major pieces of research and are planning our activities for 2019.

Scottish tech Companies

We have brought  all our data on Scottish companies up to date with information on companies created up to the end of 2017. We also have a sprinkling of companies created in 2018.

In 2019 we will be able to provide information on :

  • Companies created in the past four years
  • Companies dissolved in the last four years
  • All the companies in Scotland by skills, sector, location, city, council, size, age and several other categories

The Company Connecting Innovation Index

For the first time we will be publishing our innovation index. This will provide a unique insight into the innovative capability of Scottish companies. Do we have the tech capability in Scotland to provide companies with the skills to help them grow their businesses? Where is the innovative capability? Is their pockets of companies with skills that can progress innovation in Scotland outside the central belt and the main cities?

Tech companies outwith Scotland

We already have about 1,700 companies from the rest of the UK and in other areas of the world. We are interested in speeding up our take on of companies. We are particularly interested in the tech powerhouses of the North England and Estonia. Why Estonia? It’s got loads of small interesting high tech companies. It would be great to see if we can start to connect more companies together particularly in some of the more innovative tech disciplines.

Can you help us with this expansion?

New Services

In 2019, Company Connecting will be launching at least one new service, and we want to continue to build our membership benefits. If you have something you would like to offer, or are looking for help with, then please contact us.


We have several different series of article e.g. startups, making a difference, being disruptive etc. We will continue with these and a couple of new series too. If you would like to contribute in anyway, then please let us know. We frequently publish articles from our registered users free of charge, if they are informational, help solve a problem or provide some insights into tech or business.
