“The Grey Matters programme is an excellent catalyst and support for guided self-improvement and as a platform for meeting a diverse group of industry veterans with the range of skills and attitudes that are essential in building a team to create a successful business.”

 - Dr. Andrew Jaffrey, CTO, Sentinel Subsea Ltd.

Do you have what it takes to collaborate and create a high-growth scaleable energy sector business?

The Grey Matters programme, delivered by Elevator in collaboration with Scottish Enterprise and OGTC  aims to drive the future of energy in Scotland by utilising the experience, knowledge and innovation of Oil and Gas professionals who have been made redundant or are facing redundancy but have the ambition to collaborate and create a high-growth scalable business.

Participants will undergo idea generation,  innovation and start-up workshops and be introduced to business modelling tools as part of this programme. A business idea is not essential to be a part of the programme.

Applicants must be able to dedicate 16-weeks to this intense learning and growth experience at Elevator's Centre of Entrepreneurship in Bridge of Don, Aberdeen. The programme will commence Thursday 15th November 2018 and will consist of two classroom days per week (Thursdays and Fridays) but tasks outwith these days will be required to be undertaken.

If you have any questions regarding this Programme please contact Karen Clark via email: or call 07824 504 387.
