Daily launches new campaign to encourage more entrepreneurs

PrintA daily newspaper has launched a new campaign aimed at encouraging more entrepreneurs.

The Herald, Glasgow, is running a series aimed at highlighting Scotland’s current and future entrepreneurial talents, as well as addressing the key issues and challenges facing entrepreneurs in the current economic climate.

Over the course of 2017 the paper will be looking at innovations, inventions and inspiring stories – whether from people taking their first steps into the world of business, or have decades of experience to draw on.

The Herald team up with Glasgow Clyde College’s international and business development department, legal firm Wright Johnston & Mackenzie, and entrepreneur John McGlynn for the scheme.

Graeme Smith, editor of The Herald, said: “We regularly focus on entrepreneurs big and small in our business pages so are delighted to be involved in this project with our partners.

“Those partners have a range of skills in areas which are key to the success of any new business and, over the coming weeks and months, we will be sharing the kind of advice and expertise which will prove invaluable to any budding entrepreneur.

“We will report on those who have taken the first steps in setting up their own business and tap into the experience of some of the biggest names in Scottish business.”

“We were very keen to do this to capitalise on The Herald’s reputation as the number one title for business coverage in Scotland.”
