The fantasy sports game developer is one of the EIE success stories having first appeared at the annual event in 2010.
The FanDuel co-founders will be joined as keynote speakers at this April’s EIE18 by Dame Stephanie Shirley, one of the UK’s most renowned tech entrepreneurs, and Eileen Burbridge, a partner at London venture capitalist Passion Capital.
Steve Ewing, director of operations at Informatics Ventures, the technology entrepreneur support programme behind the event, said: “The chance to get a firsthand account of the challenges associated with rapidly scaling a technology business like FanDuel is an experience that all of our delegates will want to share, not least our 2018 cohort of companies.”
Lesley Eccles said: “EIE was an important part of our early journey from start-up to global tech business and we are big supporters of the role the Informatics Ventures team play in supporting our most promising technology entrepreneurs and start-ups.
“Experience has shown us that while it is possible to build really successful tech businesses from a base in Scotland, you also need to be able to grow the investor base outside of Scotland and events like EIE can help to put Scottish start-ups on the radar of investors in London, Europe, North America and Asia.”
