The day will highlight key success stories of entrepreneurs who have grown their businesses and know the challenges SMEs face, providing insights on how to succeed.

Keynote speakers include Brian McGuire, Managing Director of our client VisionCall Group, and Dougal Sharp, Founder of Innis & Gunn Brewing Company.

What is Opportunity Knocks all about?

The event will be a great chance for individuals to meet entrepreneurs and potentially create mentoring links with those who catch their eye.

It will also be of valuable experience to entrepreneurs, as they get the chance to learn from a wide range of experts and build a network that can help fuel their high-potential growth for years to come.

Delegates will hear from successful entrepreneurs, see a live pitching competition, hear from a panel of experts and can also join case study led seminars and workshops on topics including Crowdfunding, Pitching, and the Essentials of Growth Finance for early stage businesses.

In addition to learning from our keynote speakers, delegates will have the opportunity to quiz a panel of influencers from the Scotland Business ecosystem on all things business including finance, leadership and building teams,

There will be a interactive pitching competition for five of Scotland's best entrepreneurs, with a chance to win 'money can't buy prizes' donated by our corporate partners. The audience will become the judge for the day and decide their winner by text voting.

You will see the ecosystem in action in the exhibition and networking area over the breaks and lunch - you will have the opportunity to learn about the support available for startup and growing businesses as well as help entrepreneurs validate their products and services!
