If you’re keen to make your mark in 5G, find connections or information about funding calls, there are plenty of opportunities.

The problem for many organisations in Scotland is how to access the right information – much of the info out there is not relevant to Scotland or omits local opportunities. We therefore bring you a regular feed of information relevant to businesses and other organisations operating in Scotland or interested in investing here.

Help spread the word

We’d love to hear about opportunities you’re offering or about to announce, so we can help you promote them. Contact us and tell us how we can help.
