January 28th – Putting Your Global Mindset to Work, at WeWork Edinburgh

We are maintaining our work with Entrepreneurial Scotland this January as we host an event at WeWork in Edinburgh

Back in October, as part of #SIW19, we hosted our hugely successful London Launchpad which saw 9 globally ambitious business leaders from the Entrepreneurial Scotland community venture south of the border for a day or learning, development, inspiration & connections. 

Returning for January's event are some of those entrepreneurs who took part in the London Showcase. They will be forming a guest panel that will discuss some of their key learnings and touch on any recent developments within their business since their return from London. 

We will also have a Keynote speech from serial entrepreneur George Mackintosh. George has worked in London, Hong Kong and Chicago and has traded in many other countries globally - if you are looking for global insight, don't miss out on hearing his reflections.

There are still tickets available for this event - sign up here.
