Grey Matters, the company creation programme, has been designed to stimulate economic recovery and create new opportunities within two of Scotland’s key industries.
With a focus on collaboration, the rigorous, fully-funded 16-week programme will support start-ups or individuals who are looking to develop ideas and solutions to create high growth businesses, increase job creation and boost the economy.
Our next programme has two specific focusses:
GM Aerospace - a joint initiative with Scottish Enterprise – has been designed to support Scotland's ex-aerospace workforce. For the first time, we're looking for individuals who have worked in the Aerospace sector and are at risk of being made redundant or have been made redundant, and are sitting on an innovative business idea that is ready to take off.
GM Energy - a joint initiative between Ledingham Chalmers and the Net Zero Technology Centre – will once again support individuals from the wider energy and technology sectors who is at risk of being made redundant or has been made redundant and is looking to develop a business or solution focussed on Net Zero/Green Energy/Clean Energy/Clean Tech.
The programme is more than an accelerator. It has a clear purpose to support start-ups developing solutions and create new businesses with high growth potential. To date, we have already created 27 exciting new ventures with each helping to drive positive change.
