Our Networking Breakfasts are popular events which give attendees the opportunity for high quality networking for a full hour, as well as hear an inspiring entrepreneurial journey or from a relevant topic expert.  Welcoming, beneficial, fun and outstanding networking opportunities is how guests describe our Breakfasts which take place monthly in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

At our April Breakfast, we’re delighted to be welcoming tech entrepreneur, Rich Wilson, CEO of Gigged.AI.  Join us to hear from this engaging and pioneering entrepreneur who regularly speaks at global events and is a shining light in the Scottish tech entrepreneurial landscape, with expert knowledge in AI.


Rich Wilson, CEO, and co-founder of Gigged.AI, kickstarted his career in the staffing industry as a recruiter, eventually gaining recognition as a proficient sales leader and former Gartner executive. Holding a position on the board of The Data Lab, Scotland’s hub for data and AI innovation, he remains steadfast in his commitment to driving technological progress.

Gigged.AI launched in July 2021 and secured £600K pre-seed investment one month later, followed by raising further seed funding of £1.8M.  Rich much of their success in securing investment down to their focused 5 year plan, brand-building, culture and exit plan and he’ll be sharing his experiences of raising money.

“FOMO definitely helps attract investors.”

Furthermore, Rich is a passionate supporter of mental health awareness, actively championing initiatives focused on destigmatising mental health issues and ensuring universal access to support resources.

“Key to the success of Gigged.AI to date has been our focus on building a culture where wellness and mental health are at the core of what we do.” 


Gigged.AI is an AI-powered Talent Platform helping tech teams find the right talent at the right time.  Their AI-driven Talent Marketplace was launched in July 2021 with support from Innovate UK.  Gigged.AI uses generative AI and machine learning technology to make it easy to find great on-demand talent which ensures more tech projects are delivered.  Gigged.AI has over 300 clients and 15K talent users serviced by a team of 15.
