The BIG Announcement

I am pleased to tell you that on Wednesday we announced that later this year, Entrepreneurial Spark’s Edinburgh Hatchery will take residence in the RBS new Centre of Excellence For Entrepreneurship and Business Innovation at Gogarburn.

The bank is transforming its former ‘executive wing’ into a centre for entrepreneurs and innovation, bringing together Scotland’s enterprise ecosystem to share knowledge and expertise and encourage collaboration to support fledgling businesses. This is a state of the art, purpose built facility. It is fantastic and will enable Entrepreneurial Spark to continue our reach for the stars.

The centre was opened by the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon MSP, alongside Ross McEwan, CEO of RBS. Both our Entrepreneurs-in-Residence, Lord Willie Haughey and Ann Gloag OBE were in attendance – as well as a whole host of Chiclets.

Thank you all for your tweets and support this week!
