Gaining an advantage

Entrepreneurs - Course aimed at entrepreneurs to grow their companies - SantanderCB

The University of Strathclyde is celebrating the success of its inaugural Growth Advantage Programme, headed by John Anderson.

The former chief executive of The Entrepreneurial Exchange – now rebranded as Entrepreneurial Scotland – joined the University in March 2014 as head of small and medium-sized enterprise engagement at Strathclyde Business School and director of the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship.

One of Anderson's most high-profile roles since taking up his posts has been as course leader for the Growth Advantage Programme (GAP), a ten-month business accelerator scheme supported by Santander's corporate and commercial banking division.

The course is aimed at entrepreneurs with ambitions to grow their companies, which are already turning over at least £1m and have at least ten staff.

It's the first programme of its kind from a business school in Scotland and offers training that's normally only available south of the Border or overseas.
