Your network is your net-worth’ was the theme of the day as Aberdeen’s business community gathered at the city’s Science Centre for the Transform Business Festival.
The event, delivered by entrepreneurial support organisation Elevator and Business Gateway Aberdeen City & Shire in collaboration with the regions’ councils, aims to connect local business owners, start-ups and support partners to inspire and share knowledge.
Attendees heard from headline speakers Eric Doyle and Rose Owen on the importance of meaningful networking, while Rob Law MBE, CEO of kids’ luggage brand Trunki, shared his inspirational story of defying the odds in both life and business.
The free event also included workshops from Google Digital Garage, fireside chats, and an Ecosystem Village where attendees could access advice from support organisations.
The popular event is now in its second year and was attended by over 250 people.
Elevator CEO Professor Gary McEwan commented: “It was fantastic to welcome so many entrepreneurs and partners to Transform for another stimulating event.
“The festival highlights Elevator and Business Gateway’s continued commitment to providing support to entrepreneurs across the region. Learning is crucial to building a business – Transform offers a chance to connect with and learn from the experiences of others. Elevator is proud to be able to facilitate this for the local business community and beyond.”
