Digital Technology Awards
FanDuel is a four-time winner
The competition, run by trade body ScotlandIS, and FanDuel picked up four awards on the night including the premier prize, Digital Technology Business of the Year.
FanDuel, based in Quartermile, Edinburgh, is one of a number of fast-growing technology firms in the city. It was a sponsor at the Fight of Century in Las Vegas, paying a reported £1 million for badging winner Floyd Mayweather’s shorts.
Fellow Quartermile resident Skyscanner was among the Digital Technology award winners.
Polly Purvis, chief executive of ScotlandIS, said: “The sheer volume and strength of the award applications was outstanding so I would like to congratulate all of our winners. From specialist businesses to well-known names we saw a great many examples of passion, innovation and hard work.
“Scotland is home to a growing number of ambitious and successful technology companies and as a small country I believe we punch well above our weight. ScotlandIS now has over 300 member businesses and this year’s award winners offer a snapshot of the talent making waves across our industry.”
