Skypark, Finnieston, Glasgow. We are head tenant on a 2000sq.ft creative workspace which we share with ten other SME's. It's a great way for us all to have a fantastic office space (with great views) and network / be part of a bigger scene.
It started as an idea at Glasgow School of Art where Philip Ross (my business partner) and I met. We patented the Safehinge product and spun out into a company. We started working around a kitchen table, but now supply into over 50% of UK local authorities and are market leaders in safety products for doors!
Becoming market leader having started from nothing. We've been involved in some great projects including the Olympic Swimming Pool in London, Manchester City FC training ground, not to mention 100's of schools around the UK.
To continue growth. We've just launched into the Mental Health sector and are seeing some major opportunities here. We just supplied our first project to Bupa, but this is just the tip of the iceberg.
"I would recommend engaging with the various agencies/advisors that are active in Scotland. They can signpost relevant funders to you and make introductions. It's also important to allow sufficient time for funding to be agreed and drawn down. Due diligence can take longer than expected and so the business needs to look ahead and account for that in its budgeting."
