15 Scottish Tech Companies to Watch in 2022
With 2022 set to be an exciting year for Scottish tech, DIGIT explores some of the companies expected to grab headlines.
Many Scottish tech companies will have entered 2022 with a new-found sense of optimism and excitement.
Despite challenging conditions, the Scottish tech sector performed well in 2021, with several notable acquisitions, expansions and investment deals.
Statistics published by Dealroom in December revealed that Edinburgh alone saw 47 successful venture capital rounds in 2021, while quarterly KPMG data painted a positive picture for investment in Scottish scaleups.
Indeed, across Scotland, the technology sector is maturing at great pace as Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen-based startups continue to raise eyebrows.
Looking to the year ahead, DIGIT explores some of the most exciting Scottish tech companies to watch. These dynamic firms operate across a range of areas, including fintech, cryptocurrency, ecotech and the growing agritech industry.
Founded by CEO Lynne Darcey Quigley, Glasgow-based fintech Know-It is a cloud-based credit management platform which aims to make the credit control process easier.
The company’s primary aim is to help SMEs take greater control of their finances and cashflow – issues which many small businesses across the country have faced since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
In December, Know-It was among several Scottish tech companies recognised in Tech Nation’s Rising Stars 4.0 programme. Building on that success, Know-It is definitely one to watch in 2022.
