It is always nice to gain recognition for our work and we were delighted that Young Enterprise Scotland was awarded the social impact entrepreneur Award by Shalini Khemka of E2Exchange AtScaleup2success in Glasgow recently.
E2E, the UK-based entrepreneurs' community with 30,000 Ambassadors to date, and IWG, the world's leading flexible workplace provider, hosted the #ScaleUp2Success event on the 13th November at the impressive Spaces building in Glasgow.
The event marked seven years of E2E's support of entrepreneurs and SMEs across the country. E2E began in 2011 and was inspired by the strength of Scotland's entrepreneurial networks. Founder and CEO Shalini Khemka's involvement with the Entrepreneurial Exchange in Scotland inspired her to start E2E, along with the support of Duncan Bannatyne OBE and John McGlynn, Founder, Scottish Capital. Both are Board Directors of E2
Alison Bell from our YES Team was able to pick this up on behalf of the organisation.
Time to find a place for our award on our wall!
Glasgow is a very special city for us. I launched E2E after seeing the strength of the relationships between founders in Glasgow formerly brought together by the Entrepreneurial Exchange in Glasgow. As a result, we have been privileged to have extraordinary entrepreneurs such as Sir Tom Farmer CVO, CBE, FRSE, DL, Sir Jackie Stewart and Jim McColl OBE speak for us over the years and play an important part in our growth story
The support in the room for Young Enterprise Scotland on hearing what we do was amazing
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
