Based in Scot­land and found­ed in 2010 by Neil Tocher and Cameron Ure. NCTech’s iSTAR® is the worlds fastest and first ful­ly auto­mat­ic, 50 megapix­el, 360 degree HDR cam­era. Small, light­weight and robust, it is easy to trans­port, quick to set up and does not need spe­cial train­ing or pho­to­graph­ic skills to oper­ate.

Orig­i­nal­ly devel­oped for the mil­i­tary and police, this new type of rapid recon­nais­sance cam­era is pre­dict­ed to dis­place cur­rent tech­nol­o­gy and has mul­ti­ple appli­ca­tions: from covert oper­a­tions and police report­ing of crime scenes to 3D laser doc­u­men­ta­tion and asset man­age­ment for the engi­neer­ing and her­itage sec­tors.

Orig­i­nal­ly self-fund­ed and still pri­vate­ly held NCTech recent­ly received invest­ment from busi­ness angel syn­di­cate Archangels and is list­ed on the Scot­tish Enter­prise high growth stream.

Archangel Infor­mal Invest­ments

Archangel Infor­mal Invest­ment is Scotland’s lead­ing Busi­ness Angel Syn­di­cate.

Orig­i­nal­ly formed in 1992 and based in Edin­burgh, the syn­di­cate now com­pris­es around 100 investor mem­bers and invests in ear­ly stage Scot­tish com­pa­nies.

Scot­tish Co-Invest­ments Fund

The Scot­tish Co-invest­ment Fund (SCF) is a £72 mil­lion equi­ty invest­ment fund estab­lished by Scot­tish Enter­prise, part­ly fund­ed by the Euro­pean Region­al Devel­op­ment Fund (ERDF), to invest from £100,000 to £1 mil­lion in com­pa­ny finance deals of up to £2 mil­lion.

Unlike a stan­dard ven­ture cap­i­tal (VC) fund or a busi­ness angel, the SCF does not find and nego­ti­ate invest­ment deals on its own; instead it forms con­trac­tu­al part­ner­ships with active VC fund man­agers, busi­ness angels and busi­ness angel syn­di­cates from the pri­vate sec­tor.

Scot­tish Enter­prise

Scot­tish Enter­prise is the main eco­nom­ic devel­op­ment agency for Scot­land cov­er­ing 93% of the pop­u­la­tion from Grampian to the Bor­ders.

The Scot­tish Enter­prise Net­works con­sists of Scot­tish Enter­prise and 12 Local Enter­prise Com­pa­nies.

Work­ing in part­ner­ship with the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tors, the Net­work aims to build bet­ter busi­ness­es, to devel­op the skills and knowl­edge of the Scot­tish peo­ple, and to encour­age inno­va­tion to make Scot­tish busi­ness inter­na­tion­al­ly com­pet­i­tive.
