The First Minister Nicola Sturgeon officially opened Scotland’s latest Innovation and Investment Hub in London last night.
With more than 450 businesses registering their interest in becoming members in the first few weeks Scotland House will help ambitious Scottish companies take advantage of business opportunities in London and internationally, provide touchdown facilities and a place to meet customers and target new markets, secure investment and showcase products and services.
With a Team Scotland approach all under one roof it brings together officials from the Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and VisitScotland.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said:
London is a very important trading market and a meeting place for the world’s business leaders, but for Scottish businesses it can be challenging and costly to try and break into these markets.
The new hub will play a critical role in attracting investment to Scotland, helping businesses trade internationally and raising Scotland’s international profile.
