This summer, LINIAN Managing Director Ian Arbuckle was selected as one of 20 ‘Business Stars’ for the Unlocking Ambition Challenge to find Scotland’s next business success story.
From 6th-8th November, Ian will be heading to City Hall, London to attend lunch with the Deputy Mayor of London at the next event for the Scotland CAN DO Unlocking Ambition Challenge.
The first twenty candidates to receive Unlocking Ambition support were announced in June by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. Every year, this programme aims to nurture and support these 20 entrepreneurs with high potential who can demonstrate that their ideas can be a success, create jobs and benefit Scottish society. LINIAN are extremely proud to have been selected to take part in this scheme, which focuses on nurturing and supporting innovators, academics and researches with entrepreneurial potential and innovative business ideas.
The programme is led by The Royal Society of Edinburgh with support from Scottish Enterprise, based on the highly successful Enterprise Fellowship that the RSE has been running for over 20 years. This cutting -edge programme is tailored to fit the requirements of each business, covering topics such as financial plans, business plans, investor pitching, building teams and scaling businesses. Vast international expansion is a on the horizon for LINIAN. We currently have stockists throughout the UK, South Africa, Estonia and Ireland and are currently pursuing further international partnerships, therefore are excited to see what this programme brings!
