Why wasn't my startup submission accepted?
Your startup probably doesn't meet the required criteria:
1. It must have been founded in Scotland in the 21st century, and
2. You must have the ambition to transform your industry, and
3. You must enjoy a deep-fried Mars® bar now and then.
My startup matches all of the criteria, but it's still not on the list. Why?
Are you sure you didn't submit a hobby project, some fatuous idea or just an obscure blog (we get a lot of those)? If after 1 month we still haven't posted your startup and it definitely matches all of the criteria, it may be the case we found the quality of your idea or the design of your website landing page just isn't a good fit.
