Edinburgh Business Startups

Ranked as the best city to live in the UK for 2015, Scotland's capital has come a long way. It is affectionately known as "Auld Reekie" ("Old Smokey" in Middle Scots) due to the thick plumes of smoke that would rise from the chimneys with coal fires used for heating in the 19th century. This sparked a Victorian era response of building parks and creating more outdoor spaces to reduce the smoke. Edinburgh now has over 100 parks and more trees per individual than any other UK city. 

Today, tourism is one of the top earners in the region and each year thousands flock to events such as The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.  Other strong industries include technology and financial services.  The the city remains an attractive launch pad for new business startups across all sectors with many choosing to set up limited companies through which to operate.
