FanDuel founders Nigel and Lesley Eccles, together with Rob Jones, will address an investor pitching event in April.

The trio, who have left the fantasy games company they formed in Edinburgh in 2009, will speak at EIE18 at the EICC in April.

They will be joined by technology entrepreneur Dame Stephanie Shirley and Eileen Burbridge, a partner at London venture capitalist Passion Capital.

Mr Eccles and Mr Jones have recently announced a new venture, Flick, in the e-sports market.

FanDuel is now headquartered in New York, but still employs a substantial workforce in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
