Sarah Downs, the Co-founder, and Chief Relationship Officer at Doqaru, expressed her enthusiasm about the accomplishment. “Doqaru will deliver a sales mastery program for women startup entrepreneurs in Scotland. This contract win further solidifies our position as a forerunner in sales development for startups and scaleups, and we are excited to continue delivering exceptional value in the region,” she shared.

The contract win not only signifies Doqaru’s prowess in sales development but also emphasises its commitment to fostering inclusive entrepreneurship support.
