It is truly amazing that we had the opportunity to award over £700,000 to fledgling businesses in Scotland. There was no equity involvement, but the businesses that received the funding will really have a fantastic opportunity to get going, live their dreams and grow.
We truly have a fantastic well networked support system in place, that shows risks can work. John Swinney took the risk of taking a relatively small amount of money and get it directly to the businesses that desperately need it. This is the true area that there is a funding gap, but more there is a confidence gap that Scot’s suffer from about failure
I believed today we closed that confidence gap quite a bit.
Well done to everyone that took part.Tweet
