Event description

Description

Opportunity Knocks is a collaborative event that brings together the best entrepreneurial talent, leading business experts, funders and the entrepreneurial eco-system. After the success of last year’s event in Scotland, and the recent events in Brighton & Leeds, we are back in Scotland for a second round of the Opportunity Knocks UK tour.

The day will highlight key success stories from companies who have grown their own business and know the difficult challenges that SMEs face. These companies will share their life lessons, insight, advice and top tips on how to succeed in the business world!

*Please note, that you can only attend speed mentoring sessions if you have a ticket for the entire day. Free tickets for Scotland Opportunity Knocks can be found at the following link*
