Its time to rouse that holiday spirit and celebrate 'Startupmas' in Edinburgh again.
This is an event for everyone involved in the Scottish Startup/Entrepreneurial Community, their friends and family. You do not have to be a member of the League of Entrepreneurs to attend :-)
Food and drink provided by our sponsors - TBC
RSVP ends 10:00am on Wednesday, Dec 19th. Tickets will also be sold on Eventbrite...
The event will start at 6:30pm and last until 11.00pm and will be held at the Wash Bar on The Mound, which sits in the midway between New and Old Town. From there the group will likely move to the Village Pub at 49 George IV Bridge from 11:00pm to 1:00 am.. The suggested after-party location is the Jazz Bar on Chambers Street that will be open from 1:00am-3:00am, or one of the many Clubs open until 3:00am on George Street, where more Christmas activity will abound.
Our League of Entrepreneurs Startup Christmas Party will overlook Edinburgh's Christmas Festival and German Christmas Marketplace.
The dress code is smart casual but we are sure you will want to impress.
We look forward to seeing you there.

About League of Entrepreneurs
The League of Entrepreneurs (LoE) is a virtual, global network of technology entrepreneurs that shares and communicates on the Slack platform. We believe in data, metrics, lean methodologies, and scientific, disciplined approach to building new global technology ventures rapidly. Amongst other offerings, we host monthly "Ask Me Anything" sessions with Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and venture capitalists on our Slack channel. We also are building local chapters for face-to-face intervention. Our local chapter in Edinburgh was born from CofoundersLab Scotland, founded and organized by Michael Clouser and James Schoemark. We continue same themes as envisioned by CoFoundersLab for its once-international network of local chapters, including creating a positive, motivating environment where entrepreneurs can find cofounders, in the midst of interactive meetings where entrepreneurs are encouraged to "get up and pitch" and tell us about what they are looking for not only in terms of cofounders, but also in terms of mentors, advisors, investors, and interns. We used a combination of straight presentations and Fireside Chats to engage with our guest entrepreneurs, which have included Rob Jones (formerly of Fanduel), Mike Ramsay (founder of Tivo and Silicon Valley venture capitalist with NEA), and local serial and social impact entrepreneur, Daniel Winterstein. We hold monthly meetings in Edinburgh, and are strong supporters of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), hosting and supporting numerous events in Edinburgh and Glasgow during the month of November. We also throw the annual Startups Christmas party for startup professionals, friends and family in Edinburgh, and invite those from all over Scotland to attend. We are currently growing our global network virtually, as well as seeking partners for local chapters around the world.
