     8:30 am - 10:00 am

Our Networking Breakfasts launched in February 2022 and are a key monthly event in the Scottish business calendar, taking place in both Glasgow and Edinburgh.  They are open events where both members of WeDO and non-members are welcome.  Offering a fantastic opportunity to spend a full hour networking, we alternate each month between an entrepreneurial speaker who will share their journey (including challenges faced – no rose tinted glasses overviews!) and topic based, where the speaker will share their expertise and tips on a specific subject.  Places are limited to 50 to enable effective networking and are allocated on a first come first served basis.   Please note that tickets must be booked in advance and will not be available on the door.

This month, we are delighted to be welcoming Sheila Hogan of Biscuit Tin who is joining us at both our Glasgow and Edinburgh breakfasts. Sheila has a fantastic journey to share from appearing on Dragon’s Den to raising investment and most recently launching her first crowdfunding campaign.  A real entrepreneurial dynamo, you won’t want to miss hearing Sheila’s story!


Sheila was inspired to start Biscuit Tin following the death of her parents. They had a biscuit tin full of papers, notes and photos but finding everything she needed was difficult and stressful. Her mission was simple: find a solution to remove hassle and stress when someone close passes away. Sheila was sure there had to be a way to ease the burden of paperwork, endless decisions and uncertainty that had weighed heavy on her shoulders. As the idea formed, she built a strong team around her and gained early interest from investors and the media alike. In a world where there are digital tools to simplify almost every area of our lives, not having one to close them down seems like a glaring omission.
Sheila has an extensive career in technology, facilitating digital transformation spanning three decades. She is a serial entrepreneur and has founded and designed multiple award-winning businesses. Sheila is a passionate, visionary leader who makes change happen.
Some of her key highlights in 2022 include:
  • Appearing on BBC Dragon’s Den.
  • Securing £330,000 of backing from Velocity Capital, Scottish Enterprise and a private investor.
  • Travelling to Silicon Valley with StartUp Grind as one of Scotland’s top twenty high growth potential tech companies.
  • Partnered with Scottish Building Society and the UK’s no. 1 equity release advisory, Age Partnership.
  • Awarded as Business of the Year by the Association of Scottish Businesswomen.,
  • One of 12 companies chosen from across Scotland to compete in UK-wide TechNation Rising Stars 5.0
  • Shortlisted from over 5,300 business leaders as a finalist for the Start-Up Founder of the Year Award in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.
  • Ranked number three in TechRound’s top 100 Tech companies of 2022.

Biscuit Tin are launching their first crowdfunding campaign at the beginning of February and Sheila will also be giving us insights of her experiences to date.  You can find out more about their crowdfunding HERE.
