Calling Scottish Business Experts: Techdirt Greenhouse Idea Workshop In Scotland, January 25th

from the join-us! dept

As some of you know, we’ve done a few “Techdirt Greenhouse” events over the past few years with tremendously positive feedback. These idea workshops were the basis for our Insight Community offering — bringing together a group of smart, knowledgeable experts, as well as companies that are facing specific challenges. Participating companies present their challenges in short presentations, followed by breakout sessions where the attendees would help brainstorm solutions and ideas.

I’m heading over to the University of Edinburgh School of Informatics next week to give a series of talks on entrepreneurship, economics and business models. While there, we’ll be holding the first Greenhouse of 2008 on Friday, January 25th, as a part of the Edinburgh-Stanford Link. If you’re in the area and would like to attend, it’s a great chance to meet with other smart folks and entrepreneurs, to network with them, to understand some of the challenges they face and to share your expertise. It’s taking place at the Alba Innovation Center and all of the details are here. And, when you do attend, be sure to come over and introduce yourself!

Alba Innovation Centre

Right, Mike. The Alba Innovation Centre is in Livingston, which is just outside of Edinburgh. It is operated by the same folks who manage the Hillington Park Innovation Centre (ranked #1 in the UK by UKBI last year). Here’s some more information:

There is free coffee and lunch as well f5k. These are startups with little cash, or postraduate students from the University of Edinburgh. This is an idea workshop designed to help each other. Techdirt is not making money from this event, nor is the Edinburgh-Stanford Link. Its an all-volunteer effort all the way around. This is free and open, kinda like a BarCamp except that specific issues will be worked on in groups.
