Our inspiring people
"Starting out, I lacked the language to explain my vision in business terms, and the team at Strathclyde helped me embrace new ways of thinking to translate technical concepts into the language of enterprise, and thus transforming me from an engineer to a managing director."
"Strathclyde encouraged me to embrace my ideas and helped get my business off the ground. I was provided with free office space, access to a network of people and support in getting investor ready; transforming myself and my business in order to succeed in raising finance."
"Embrace the opportunities that Strathclyde has to offer, surround yourself with good people and always go with your gut instinct. No one knows your business better than you – trust yourself and you can transform the way you do business."
