RBS and Entrepreneurial Spark to hold Business Breakfast for budding entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs from across Scotland are being invited to attend a business breakfast in Edinburgh to see how they could benefit from the world’s largest free entrepreneurial accelerator, Entrepreneurial Spark.

The showcase event, called Tech Talks, is being held at the Royal Bank of Scotland’s Technological Solutions Centre at Fettes Row and will feature advice and commentary from business support specialists as well as entrepreneurs who have made a success from deciding to set up on their own.

Entrepreneurial Spark is the world’s largest free entrepreneurial accelerator.

At the showcase on the morning of June 25, the region’s entrepreneurs will find out how to apply for the programme and will have the opportunity to ask questions of the dedicated Royal Bank of Scotland Entrepreneurship team.

A breakout networking session will follow the main programme.

Royal Bank of Scotland’s Carl Haagensen, who has recently been appointed Entrepreneurial Development Manager for Scotland, said: “This is a superb opportunity for budding entrepreneurs and those who have just started on their journey to access some first-class support.

“The successful applicants will get to work in a collaborative atmosphere in the hatchery with plenty of access to the local team from Royal Bank of Scotland as well as our wider networks.

“We have already received a number of exciting applications from across the country. These are the ideal conditions in which to raise awareness of the new intake of chiclets and I’m confident we’ll see some great success stories emerge from it.”

Some of the speakers at the event include Andrew Duncan, Managing Director of Swarm Online, who will impart his extensive knowledge he has gained running his own tech company, as well as Entrepreneurial Spark ‘chiclet’ Roger Dubar, founder of Zapcoder.

Entrepreneurs who attend the tech talks event will have the opportunity to apply to become a a chiclet at one of Scotland’s three ‘hatcheries’ in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Ayrshire.

Those who are successful will be able to access the programme for up to six months, with potential to continue for another 12 for the most promising.

Access to the Scottish hatcheries include physical office space, superfast internet, a start-up bootcamp, dedicated mentoring, regular events, workshops and training – all free of charge.

Jim Duffy, CEO of Entrepreneurial Spark, added: “Our Tech Talks series are a great platform for all startups and business ideas, not just those in the tech space, to come together and discuss with purpose what it takes to bring their business to life.

“We’ve got a cracking speaker lineup with some great knowledge and experiences to share. I am sure all startups and entrepreneurs will leave suitably inspired to GoDo!”
