KultraLab picks Edinburgh for its new product hub

With thousands of thriving tech companies, top talent and world-class universities on our doorstep, Scotland is the natural next choice for KultraLab’s growth journey.

We are excited to be partnering with Kelvin Capital and Scottish Enterprise. This partnership will give us access to Scotland’s talent and technology experts which will help power our growth

A triple benefit of talent, expertise and environment

For cutting-edge tech companies like KultraLab, Scotland is a natural choice. Our internet of things (IoT) network is the most advanced in the UK, providing the ideal environment for companies to test, develop and commercialise new services. As well as this, our centres of excellence, which focus on specialities from cyber security to space, open countless opportunities for collaboration.

Scotland’s tech talent was another big draw for KultraLab. With more than 15,000 digital technology graduates each year coming from our world-class universities, we have plenty of highly skilled experts to choose from.

The decision by KultraLab to open an engineering hub in Edinburgh underlines just why so many innovative companies choose to grow in Scotland. KultraLab was attracted to Scotland due to our incredibly talented workforce and world-class universities. Alongside the supportive business environment, this is what makes Scotland stand out from the rest of the crowd.

Part of a growing trend

KultraLab is the latest in a long line of companies choosing Scotland as a place to grow its business. As Scottish Government Business Minister Ivan McKee announced at the 2022 World Forum for Foreign Direct Investment in Edinburgh, Scottish Development International, along with our domestic arm Scottish Enterprise and other counterparts, has supported more than one hundred inward investment projects in the 2021/22 financial year.

Almost forty of these projects involved new investors choosing to locate in Scotland for the first time, showing that our country continues to be an attractive place for firms to invest and grow.
