“The fact that our country is doing this is great. You speak to people from other countries who are entrepreneurs and these kinds of programmes and support system doesn’t exist. Being part of this cohort makes me incredibly proud. Looking around the table, there’s some brilliant businesses there so I’m going to learn from them and already we’re having conversations where I’ve shared a particular issue we’ve been having and am learning from people who have had the same issue and importantly, how they’ve handled it.”

Hannah Fisher, The Start-Up Drinks Lab

 

“Being part of Unlocking Ambition has really helped with the broader support as an individual working on an idea on your own. This has been brilliant for me to help support the idea, the progression of it, to provide funding but also to the momentum – to keep going with it.”

Joan Johnson, Bespoke Fabrics

 

“It is hugely prestigious and I think giving the access to the speakers, the workshops and of course to the other cohort and the other businesses involved is invaluable, you can’t buy that expertise, so to be part of UA is really exciting for us.”

Stephanie Terreni Brown, Clean Water Wave

 

“We have a long tradition in Scotland of changing the world through inventions. If you can see the Skyscanners, the Brewdogs, the FanDuels that are out there, that example is only going to filter through to the next generation of entrepreneurs like myself or even younger than me, and we should encourage that and live out everything we have in our potential to make Scotland one of the most enterprising countries in the world.”

Alan Mahon, Brewgooder
