Jo our CEO graduated from the 2018/19 Saltire Fellowship on Friday 1st March at a ceremony hosted by Edrington in Glasgow, along with 9 other Fellows who were participating on the programme from across Scotland.
The programme began in September 2018 with a kick off week in Peebles, followed by 2 months in the US where they studied at Babson College before going on a 2 week Silicone Valley learning journey. The last 4 months have seen continuing workshops with a variety of entrepreneurs and business accelerators to support the Fellows’ learning.
Part of the challenge during the programme was to tackle the global marine plastics challenge, and present SEPA with their recommendations for a project which could help impact on the problem in Scotland.
The Fellows continue to contribute to Entrepreneurial Scotland’s network of alumni, developing and connecting a diverse, talented and ambitious group of people who have the potential to change our economy and society .
‘This has been an immense experience which has had considerable impact on how I will approach challenges in the future. I will continue to tap into the network of skills and experience, and share learning into the arts sector’
Jo, CEO TTN
