Your Impact as an Entrepreneur as a Leader Make sure your team are with you on the journey

Having the privilege to work with Entrepreneurial Leaders as they grow their businesses is inspiring, challenging and always interesting. Whether working one to one with leaders on their own development, supporting the building and development of their team, facilitating and coaching leadership development or developing growth strategies.  In Scotland just now we have a thriving entrepreneurial eco system to support businesses from start-up to growth and then scaling their business, which I am very proud to be part of. I thought it may be helpful to share some of the common challenges I find entrepreneurial leaders face when growing their business and some of the feedback I...

Remain or Leave

As a lawyer, I have been trained to gather the evidence, examine it, ask relevant questions and then come to an informed decision based on an analysis of the best available evidence.

The EIS Market Continues to Grow

I was interested in the report  recently been published by the EIS Association . There had been concerns that the exclusion of small-scale renewable energy schemes from EIS relief might result in some decline in EIS investment.  However, the results of the survey are encouraging not only because it suggests that the EIS market is continuing to grow but that investment is continuing to flow into trading companies. At the same time we are seeing an exponential growth in crowdfunding and it is very clear from the survey that both investors and their advisers are primarily interested in the track record...

Quantiply Launch

I had the good fortune to attend the launch event of www.quantiply.co last week. The initiative could have been launched anywhere in the UK and it must be a tribute to the success of Edinburgh’s vibrant tech eco-system that they chose to launch in Edinburgh. I have been helping people to start, grow and invest in technology companies for over thirty years and technology entrepreneurs always seem to face similar challenges, namely:- Identifying an appropriate business opportunity; Creating and protecting the relevant IP; Achieving competitive advantage; Producing an investor ready Business Plan and Slide Deck; Identifying and getting in front of...
