After the unbelievable success of our first ever Entrepreneurial Spark 'Hatchery Hits the Street' event back in March at 29 Royal Exchange Square, an evening where we saw overwhelming generosity and support for our start-up community, we are both pleased and excited to announce the next one is set to be bigger and better. Happening at Glasgow's Grand Central Hotel on Friday the 20th of July, 6.30pm - 9.30pm, this event is aimed at showcasing the best of our start-up Chiclets from Glasgow and the West Coast.
The evening will allow guests the opportunity to celebrate the best of Scotland's start-up talent housed in Entrepreneurial-Spark. With fantastic guest speakers and cash prizes confirmed, guest performance from country duo Raintown, 'Hatchery Hits the Street' will be an excellent showcase of start-up entrepreneurs within Scotland, as we work towards developing our vision, enabling early stage businesses to succeed.
Entrepreneurial-Spark is Britain's first FREE business accelerator. Based in Scotlandwe support, at present, 90 eclectic start-up businesses across a range of business sectors, providing them with the facilities, enablement and a space to grow and collaborate in our Hatcheries.
Since we opened our doors in January of this year, our one of a kind model has gone from strength to strength developing our 'Chiclet' entrepreneurs to grow their business. We are a not-for-profit business and follow a lean start-up approach ourselves; with any sponsorship received going straight back to our Chiclets. In gathering momentum we have received amazing support from philanthropists Willie Haughey OBE and Sir Tom Hunter, as well as gaining backing from Scottish councils and politicians including Alex Salmond and Ed Miliband who have visited the space.
