Inspiring, Connecting and Supporting Students into Business
In response to the Scottish Government's CAN DO shared statement of intent towards becoming a world-leading entrepreneurial and innovative nation, Bridge 2 Business was developed as an interactive and engaging programme to inspire, connect and support college students into business.
The Bridge 2 Business programme offers enterprising students first hand opportunities to engage with appropriate and relevant entrepreneurial role models. The programme is for any enterprising young students who might have an interest in setting up their own business now or in the future or for those who are looking to take enterprise skills to their workplace. Alongside the opportunity to meet and engage with inspiring role models the programme will help connect students with the entrepreneurial eco-system that exist in Scotland, to support our much needed start-up businesses. In addition to inspiring and connecting our students, we also offer the chance to access a small grant to help test out their business ideas, matching those successful with a mentor from the local business community who will be able to assist as they progress with their business plans.
