NEW and future food and drink entrepreneurs are invited to pitch their business ideas to win a free place on weekend workshops launched by Musselburgh-based Queen Margaret University (QMU).
Applications are now open for the two sessions, which are part of THRIVE – a collaborative initiative from QMU, Abertay University and Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) to support sustainable growth in the food and drink sector.
There are up to 60 places available on the online Saturday workshops in November, which will bring together expertise from all three institutions, as well as external industry professionals.
They will help students and recent graduates gain an understanding of the skills and knowledge they need to start a business in the sector.
Miriam Smith, innovation and enterprise manager at QMU, said: “Venturing into the world of entrepreneurship is an exciting but daunting prospect for anyone, especially when funding and knowledge is limited. So many business ideas don’t even get off the ground.
“We want to ensure our graduates have the very best chance of success and are equipped to develop their business idea so they can turn it into reality.
“THRIVE will provide students with an outstanding insight into the food and drink industry.”
THRIVE is aimed at third and fourth-year students, as well as recent graduates, with applicants asked to pitch their ideas as part of the process.
