Event description

Description

The annual get together of the movers and shakers of Scotland's entrepreneurial ecosystem, the third CAN DO Assembly will be held at the incredible Tolbooth in Stirling. Our theme this year will be Creating the Future, which refers both to the future of CAN DO and the key role of the Creative Industries in our economy. With keynote addresses confirmed from the Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy Paul Wheelhouse MSP, Lynne Cadenhead of Women's Enterprise Scotland, Andrew Dobbie of MadeBrave and Sir Tom Hunter, it is sure to be an historic day in the heart of Stirling!
