Find CoFounders, Advisors, Mentors, Interns and Investors
Come along for an exciting, dynamic and inspiring entrepreneurial event with an exclusive Fireside Chat with a tech design entrepreneur, David Law, in the Wash Bar at 6:30pm on Tuesday the 12th of March, 2019. David's entrepreneurial edge is building tech products with smart designs, and then marketing and selling them using keen strategies and tactics.
Hangout with like-minded Entrepreneurs and Startup Founders from around the world and meet people to help build your startup or even find a startup to join as a CoFounder, Investor, Mentor, Adviser or Intern.
David Law is a Scottish Entrepreneur who has crowdfunded and bootstrapped tech design startups into successful companies in Silicon Valley, Seattle, Hawaii, and China. Raised in Ayr, David graduated from the join program at the Glasgow School of Art in Product Design. After years of building companies abroad, and recently serving as the EIR for Target, he returned to Scotland this summer, moving from Palo Alto, California. David has chose to live in Edinburgh because of its access to talent in engineering and design. During the reign of the Edinburgh-Stanford Link (2004-2010), David was an annual guest and Silicon Valley Speaker who delivered talks and workshops on design entrepreneurship. In 2010 he delivered a design entrepreneurship keynote talk at the Accel Stanford Roundtable for Entrepreneurship Education (Stanford REE) held at the University of Edinburgh's School of Informatics. David also lectured at Stanford University in product design.

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.
