The Scottish EDGE Finds a Temporary Home at The Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship

The Scottish EDGE is delighted to have found a temporary business base at the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship.  The team had moved in for two months in November but the Hunter Centre has now offered ongoing accommodation.

CEO Evelyn McDonald said

We are delighted to be part of the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship at Strathclyde Business School.  Only 1% of the world’s business schools are triple accredited and Strathclyde is one of them. Strathclyde is also the only Business School in Scotland to has been awarded the Association of Business School’s Small Business Charter (Silver) which recognises business schools with an exceptional level of proven commitment to the small business sector and with a track record of ‘actively supporting the growth of small firms, actively engaging with other stakeholders in the growth agenda and providing their students with relevant start-up support’. Given this, it is a fitting place for us to be.  With thirteen research and teaching staff and almost 30 doctoral researchers, we have access to cutting edge research on entrepreneurship in Scotland.”

The team at the Hunter Centre will benefit from looking at the case studies of the businesses  support by the Scottish EDGE and are looking to assist in tracking the progress of the winners as they develop, grow and, hopefully, internationalise.

This is a temporary arrangement until the ScotEdge team move to the RBS headquarters in Gogarburn.
