Robert Kay Regional Development Manager Entrepreneurial Scotland, said: “The Highlands and Islands is widely recognised as an entrepreneurially minded region which contributes enormously to the prosperity of Scotland. I’m looking forward to promoting the fantastic benefits entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs can enjoy when they become involved with Entrepreneurial Scotland.

“I’m confident that Entrepreneurial Scotland can make a meaningful contribution to business community across the region and we’re looking forward to welcoming new members who can benefit from our networking, advice, support and mentoring.”
