Ambitious Glasgow startups celebrate iGAP success
- Published on Friday, 08 February 2019 13:55
A key partnership between Glasgow City Council and Strathclyde Business School has come to fruition, as ambitious enterprises nurtured by the Glasgow City Deal business accelerator Tontine completed iGAP@Tontine.
iGAP@Tontine is a programme designed to help companies with aspirations to scale-up.
Drawing on their experience of the Growth Advantage Programme which delivers practical learning for leaders of businesses looking to grow, Strathclyde Business School worked with Glasgow City Council to develop the programme - a specially tailored for a select group of enterprises based at the business incubator, Tontine.
Tontine attracts and nurtures high growth entrepreneurial talent and its Merchant City base is host to many of Glasgow's significant growth companies of the future.
The iGAP class of 2019 - the first Tontine cohort to undertake the bespoke package of learning, have now completed the six-month programme which included particular focus on growth concepts.
The design of the programme has meant that participants could share their learning over time, supported by diagnostic tools and take away tool kits to use back in their own organisations.
Each programme has been delivered by the top entrepreneurship faculty from the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship at Strathclyde Business School and directed by peer learning expert John Anderson, former chief executive of the Entrepreneurial Exchange.
