• Putting your Global Mindset to Work

    Entrepreneurial Scotland and Scottish Business Network invite you to attend our next collaborative event taking place in January 2020, for an evening of learning, inspiration and fun. Hear from 'serial entrepreneur' George Mackintosh and connect with others from the Scottish entrepreneurial community.

    Tuesday 28th January, WeWork, Edinburgh


  • Come and join us for An Evening With...George Mackintosh

    In an era of big business, being an entrepreneur was unusual—but George Mackintosh always knew he wanted to launch a startup

    Come listen as George walks you through his entrepreneurial journey. He will reflect on how, after graduating in 1979, he cut his teeth in the corporate world while setting up his first business—a microcomputer company that placed him at the forefront of the tech sector. Mr Mackintosh is on his seventh successful business. and has been described by his most recent company as a 'serial entrepreneur' in the technology market.


    George will share with you his philosophy, 'that entrepreneurialism is a mindset.' He wants to inspire those entrepreneurial-minded among us:


    "I hope my story inspires people to make things. Software, engines, diggers and modems are all products, all contributing to British industry. I’m happy to have played my part."


    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.

  • Learn from others just like you

    Back in October, as part of #SIW2019, Entrepreneurial Scotland and Scottish Business Network hosted a hugely successful London Launchpad Event.


    9 globally ambitious business leaders from the Entrepreneurial Scotland community ventured south of the border for a day or learning, development, inspiration & connections. There were masterclasses facilitated by SBN and presentations from renowned speakers such as Brian Duffy (Watches of Switzerland). In the evening we held a business showcase where our cohort of entrepreneurial learners were provided the opportunity to connect with a vast diaspora of Scottish business leaders based in London.


    Returning for January's event are some of those entrepreneurs who took part in the London Showcase. Forming a guest panel, attendees will be invited to ask them questions based on their experience of the 2019 event. The panel will discuss some of their key learnings and touch on any recent developments within their business since their return from London. It is a fantastic opportunity for peer learning and development and an opportunity to engage with other growing businesses based in Scotland.
