First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced the challenge earlier this year
Twenty entrepreneurs eager to start businesses in Scotland have been announced as the inaugural RSE Unlocking Ambition Enterprise Fellows.
This latest cohort of twenty entrepreneurs complete the 40 business founders participating in the Unlocking Ambition Challenge as announced by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
To support future opportunities, The Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) is working with the Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise (SE) and Scotland’s entrepreneurial ecosystem in the inaugural Unlocking Ambition Challenge to support entrepreneurs who want to start and scale their businesses in Scotland.
Mr Hepburn, Minister for Business, Fair Work and Skills said: “Applications for Unlocking Ambition opened in March this year and only three months later, with the addition of the RSE Enterprise Fellowship entrants, this first cohort is ready to begin its journey.
“This demonstrates the appetite for growth and the innovation potential of businesses in, or wishing to locate in, Scotland. It is particularly pleasing to note this international talent that Unlocking Ambition is attracting and retaining.
“They are showing faith in our vision for the Scottish economy and we will ensure that through Scotland CAN DO our business support and the business environment is the best in the world.”
