What a week we have had here at InCube! We have been busy with all our Global Entrepreneurship Week events which all turned out to be a great success.

We started the week off with hearing from Laura Morrow of Casa Bebe, and Michelle Smith of Value Add Business Solutions, and learning from their experiences of highs and lows of starting a business. Our businesses got a great insight into the ‘behind the scenes’ of starting a business and all agreed it was a very valuable session.

The following day Glen Buchanan spoke about supporting social enterprises in the event called Supporting Social Enterprise in Renfrewshire.

On Tuesday our InCube businesses were perfecting their pitch at Karine Burns Consultancy’s workshop. Lots of pitching practice took place and businesses had the chance to develop how they portray their business to potential stakeholders. Selling your business in less than 15 seconds is harder than it sounds! Later that day, we held a recruitment support session which was a great resource to businesses finding out more about employing additional staff on their business growth journey!

Later that day in the event called “Growing your Company … recruitment support and employer incentives to employ additional staff” we have had guests Darren and Therese from our team presenting to the businesses how Invest In Renfrewshire can support start-ups.

The middle of the week marked our first ever Twitter chat – and we had a great response. Our Twitter community came together to provide tips for start up businesses. The hour resulted in lots of extremely useful tips and great collaborative advice being shared – thankyou to all participants!
