Posted on May 16, 2017

Are you an ambitious, innovative entrepreneur who wants to grow your business in the UK and internationally? Or are you a business founder who has seen your growth stall and need to be re-energised? Perhaps you are a corporate innovator leading a product development team and need a structured approach to achieve scale on a global level?

The Scotland Can Do SCALE 2017 summer school has been launched and this year is seeking ambitious innovative entrepreneurs who want to scale up their business. Everyone taking part will be supported by leading international educators from MIT as well as Scotland’s exceptional entrepreneurial ecosystem to develop and grow their business.

The three day residential programme (30 July to 2 August) will introduce a practical structured inspirational skills for growth programme from world-leading experts in entrepreneurship and business practice, with specialists from Scotland hosting sessions throughout the week. There will also be an Alumni refresher day (3 August) where previous cohorts will be engaged in targeted problem solving discussions/activities around specific topics that may be hindering their growth.

Since inception in 2015, 127 businesses have benefited from previous summer schools in terms of increasing turnover, employing more staff and raising ambition. The programme comes highly recommended by alumni. The objective of the programme is to build a community of entrepreneurs leading scalable businesses across Scotland, with ongoing support provided to those with ambition and potential for growth. The programme is targeted at those who have already started a business and have a passion for growth including;

  • Ambitious innovation driven entrepreneurs who want to grow their business internationally
