All graduates of the SCALE programme are invited to SCALE Together – a series of free networking and learning events throughout the year
SCALE Together is a free after-care programme for all alumni of the SCALE Summer School. Designed to extend your learning and provide a strong support network of contacts for you to discuss and grow with, it consists of events and meetings throughout the year – combining specialist learnings with relaxed opportunities to discuss key issues within your organisation.
For the first part of the day, we are welcoming Tech.eu Research Editor, Natalie Novick, to speak about community building. There will also be facilitated workshops focusing on how to strengthen and harness the potential of Scotland’s entrepreneurship ecosystems.
In the evening, SCALE Together is all about the network. We’ll be hosting a Meet & Pitch, where you can sign up for a presentation slot. This space can be used to showcase a new offering, ask for feedback on a new idea, raise awareness for your business or make an ask. This will be a relaxed, social setting, and food and drink will be provided.
