We have 2015 off to a flying start here at Startup Grind Scotland with lots of exciting news and developments to report!
Our Edinburgh and Glasgow chapters are now up and running and established, and we have been privileged to host some amazing guest speakers during our 13 events total that took place through the year. For 2015 we already have a fantastic guest line up of speakers for both chapters booked up April/May including Jim McColl of Clyde Blowers Capital, Jo Macsween (Macsween Haggis), Iain Ritchie (Coppertop, TED Global speaker), Calum Smeaton (TVSquared), Marie Macklin (The Klin Group) and many more!
We are also hugely excited to announce a Scotland-wide sponsor partnership for this year with LINC, the national association for business angel investors in Scotland. This is really exciting funding to help us grow, and will provide a great strategic partnership and affiliation to raise both our profile and connection opportunities within the Scottish entrepreneurial and investment community.
In Glasgow, we are delighted to welcome continued events sponsorship support for our Glasgow Chapter from MBN Solutions Ltd, a leading recruiter to the Digital & Marketing, Insight & Analytics and Technology Sector, and Harper Macleod LLP, one of the largest and entrepreneurial law firms in Scotland, joining the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship, University of Strathclyde, our fantastic Glasgow venue sponsors.
