Scaling up business. Going global. Can you do it in Scotland? In this salon we will be hearing from a Scottish startup that has recently done just that, being bought for £1.4bn – Skyscanner.

Join our lead discussants, James HanlonHead of Product of Levima and Jenny Herbison, Director of Business Operations at Skyscanner, who will share the elements that played an essential role in Skyscanner’s transition from a startup to £1.4 billion-worth global business.

With reports also confirming that small businesses in Scotland are leaders in digital skills adoption we will look at the key success factors as well as challenges which growing business face in the digital age including:

  • What opportunities does digital bring?
  • Is ‘aiming big’ always the best idea?
  • What elements of support do businesses in Scotland get from the government?
  • What should that support look like going forward?
