Morton Fraser LLP is delighted to announce that it's sponsoring Heriot Watt's ground-breaking Converge Challenge again this year.
The Converge Challenge, run by Heriot Watt University, gives students or members of staff of any Scottish University the chance to develop the commercial potential of their inventions. By offering business mentorship and training, budding entrepreneurs can bring new products and services to market, helping Scotland's economy grow and prosper.
Austin Flynn, Head of Business Services at Morton Fraser, said: "I was involved in the 2011 Converge Challenge and found the whole process particularly inspiring and rewarding. The 2011 winner, Bellrock Technology from the University of Strathclyde, won by continually impressing the panel of judges with its product and succinct business plan for ‘Lumen’, an intelligent condition monitoring decision support software that enables technology companies to monitor the health and anticipated lifespan of their plant and equipment. We're now working closely with Bellrock's team to help bring Lumen to market. After last year's success, I'm really looking forward to seeing this year's competitors and providing legal advice to the winning and runner-up projects."
