Rising Ecosystems #4: Glasgow

In the fourth episode of this bi-weekly series, co-hosts Alex Irwin-Hunt and Yessi Bello Perez continue northward through the UK's emerging entrepreneurial ecosystems, exploring the start-up scene in Scotland's most populous city Glasgow.

Joining the show to provide their on-the-ground perspectives of the Glaswegian tech community are Dr. Olga Kozlova, the director of innovation and industry engagement at the University of Strathclyde, and Rebecca Pick, the founder and CEO of Glasgow-based security start-up Pick Protection.

Listeners can expect a detailed outline of the friendly rivalry between entrepreneurs in Glasgow and its neighbouring city Edinburgh, the strengths of the ecosystem in areas such as advanced manufacturing and health tech, how the start-up scene is being used to help inward investment and what's needed to propel the ecosystem to the next level.
