I currently work for Scottish Enterprise supporting universities create new, high-impact spin out companies in strategically important sectors, such as life science and technology. The entrepreneurial ecosystem is a subject that is therefore important to me.
Young Enterprise Scotland fits perfectly within this ecosystem supporting young individual's progress in their chosen field through the development of entrepreneurial skills. As a graduate of the YES Company programme whilst at secondary school and a scientist to trade,combining these skills through my training and work has enabled me to bridge the gap between science and business and adds strategic value to the companies work with daily.
Our Vision is for Scotland to be a place where all young people are given the opportunity to have a rewarding future in work and life - no matter where they start their journey.
Our Mission is to inspire and equip young people, irrespective of their background, to learn, develop and reach their full potential through enterprise education.
In everything that we do, we will work with the following values: Integrity, Enthusiasm, Creativity & Collaboration.
