Last week was a busy one for team ValueAdd! The calendar was chock-a-block with meetings, software demos, webinars and networking. Not to mention the day to day client work! But the most exciting day of the week was Wednesday, when I hopped on a train to Edinburgh bright and early, in time to arrive at the Hilton Carlton North Bridge for the 2018 Institute of Certified Bookkeepers Inspire Tour.
Venturefest Scotland is a national business innovation summit designed to help high-growth SMEs and ambitious early-stage companies to grow through innovation. The day starts well with coffee (all days really need to start with coffee) but I did manage to bypass the pastries this time. Kicking off sharp at 9am with the plenary I was pleasantly surprised to see a 50:50 male/female panel. Today is going to be a good day.SE announced their new start2scale support program targeting fast-growing start-ups and early-stage companies as well as existing companies with ambitious plans to scale.
