"Community gatherings with globally-proven industry experts are critical to developing Scotland's entrepreneurial ecosystem," said Nick Murray, Co-Director of Startup Grind Scotland. "Our first interview with Andy in Silicon Valley this April was a significant mindset shift for the 20 Scottish founders we took to the entrepreneurship mecca. With the Scottish Government announcing Scotland's Tech Scaler Hubs this month, now is the perfect time to look internationally to find best practices and learn from those who have been there before. This interview will broaden the horizons of what's possible for Scottish businesses through the eyes of someone who has had incredible success in scaling a SAAS business to a global entity."

“Selecting Edinburgh was the right choice for UserTesting’s European headquarters, and we are excited to be a part of this event, highlighting the value we have found in establishing offices here,” said Andy MacMillan, CEO of UserTesting. “UserTesting is proud to support Edinburgh’s, and Scotland’s, growing technology scene. There are great opportunities for companies in Scotland, due to the local education system, partnership opportunities with local government agencies, and the local talent, which is what global technology companies are looking for today.”
