Event description

Description

Our Masterclasses are weekly lectures (open to students, staff and the general public) led by entrepreneurs from across Scotland to allow them to share their business journey and knowledge of a cutting-edge area which they have become experts in, followed by Q&A.

Prof Gary McEwan, Elevator Chief Executive and Professor of Entrepreneurship at the University of Dundee works alongside our 'Enterprise & Entrepreneurship' staff to devise and deliver a strategy that will see the university recognised as the 'Leading Entrepreneurial University' in the country.

After leaving school at 15 Gary has gone on to start a number of businesses and is, by any definition, a serial entrepreneur. Gary is very clear about his passion for business. He is deeply involved in the promotion of entrepreneurship to young people as a credible career option. He regularly speaks to students of all ages, young offenders and those with addiction problems. He believes in young people and supports their development as a key part of his professional life.

Gary is CEO of Elevator, with its HQ in Aberdeen, one of 20 offices across Scotland. Elevator is a social enterprise dedicated to the promotion of economic development through entrepreneurship annually supporting over 2,500 businesses to start and scale each year.
