Wow, there is a lot going on at the moment! I’ve just come back from a great conference for entrepreneurship educators in Cardiff www.ieec.co.uk where I met a lot of fantastic people and got some great ideas. Tomorrow I’m heading out to Riga, Latvia, for another entrepreneurial education conference, entitled ‘Releasing Creative Energy’. I’m sure that I will come back from that full of energy and even more ideas!
Here at SIE we are preparing to welcome our new team members, our 20 student interns, who will be championing enterprise and entrepreneurship across all of Scotland’s higher education institutions. We are planning a fantastic series of activities and events spread across the academic year, so make sure you follow us on twitter @_sie_ , Facebook www.facebook.com/scottishinstituteforenterprise and on our own web site www.sie.ac.uk for all the latest news. (Our Facebook page has a sneak preview of some of our new marketing materials, which look amazing!)
I’ve been following the debate on some great articles too, on the state of entrepreneurship in Scotland, and on the lack of women at higher levels in technology companies. I will definitely be blogging on these topics soon!
But first I need to go and pack my bag for Riga…..
