Money Dashboard, the online personal finance company, has been selected to take part in this week's Connect Scotland Investment Conference. Money Dashboard, tipped to be the next Mint.com, expects to launch early in 2010 and will revolutionise the way we manage our money.
The Dragon's Den style event, to be held at The Hub in Edinburgh on 5 November 2009, will see investors and hi-tech companies descend on Edinburgh for the chance to win between £500,000 and £6 million each in investment.
Money Dashboard is an easy to use, secure and free online personal finance service that helps individuals and families to manage their money more effectively.
Gavin Littlejohn, Money Dashboard CEO comments: "It is wonderful to be involved with so many exciting companies and opportunities. New enterprise is vital for the recovery of the economy and it is great to see events such as these happening. Getting through to the final stage of the Connect Conference is great news for Money Dashboard.
"Having raised £1 million in October 09 we will be hoping to build relationships with key potential investors, capable of getting behind and developing a world class business. We have a great product that I fully believe can penetrate and dominate the market."
The alpha test programme was launched last month to secure feedback on the design of the product and is already fully subscribed. Currently taking registrations, it is expected that several thousand testers will trial the closed beta launch later this year.
Isabell Majewsky, chief executive of Connect Scotland organisers The GO Group, said:
"There are companies all across Scotland that, like Money Dashboard, have a great deal of potential but require funding to continue their growth. Connect can play a crucial role in helping firms raise anything from £500,000 to £6million, enabling them to develop their business sufficiently to attract the attention of advisers and further investors who can help to elevate them to the next level."
Behind Money Dashboard is a heavyweight board, made up of some of Scotland's successful businessmen, including Chairman Stuart Sinclair, former CEO of Tesco Personal Finance and GE Capital in the UK and China and David Robinson, founder and former CEO of Bright Grey.
