Sarah RonaldFounder, Nile
Scotland’s size is its strength. We are small enough to create a thriving and connected ecosystem with wide reaching benefits to be gained across academia, entrepreneurship and investment. Programmes like this are an essential part of the overall ecosystem we build. We (Nile) are here to help ensure each company, and each entrepreneur, has the best possible chance to continue to the next stage of growth.”
If we want to reach a tipping point for entrepreneurship in Scotland, initiatives like this are an essential piece of the puzzle. We have a long-held ambition to support entrepreneurs and the wider ecosystem in Scotland, so are very excited to be appointed as Strategic Design Partner for the Data-Driven Entrepreneurship Beacon Programme.”
