Edinburgh Science Triangle Entrepreneur Workshops, Wednesday March 10 2010
They say two heads are better than one. But what about twelve,
or twenty-three, or thirty-seven?
Well thanks to the Edinburgh Science
Triangle, scientists and entrepreneurs searching for the next
big idea are set to get some help realising their ambitions.
They’ll be staging a series of workshops to explain how teaming up
with others can have huge benefits when trying make the jump from
the drawing board to the real world.
One of the world’s top business speakers, Mike Southon, who
co-wrote the book The Beermat Entreprenuer and writes a column for
the Financial Times, will be on hand to explain to innovators how
to surround themselves with the right team in order to reach their
commercial potential. Free tickets for all events are available
It’s not like Edinburgh’s been short of good ideas recently
either. In the last few months alone,
the calculation of the female ovarian cycle, the
discovery of glowing bugs to find landmines and the
detection of a gene that may help explain the cause of mental
disorders have all taken place in the capital, which is also
home to around a third of all Scottish places of work that are
involved in the Science and Tech sectors.
