Ran in partnership with Techscaler & CodeBase

Are you looking to take your business to the next level?
Do you run a service-based enterprise and looking for inspiration on how you can grow and scale through technology?
Perhaps you’ve hit a stumbling block and you aren’t sure how to take the next step to grow what you do.
You’re trying to grow and scale what you do, but you’re not sure how to do that without recruiting dozens more people?

Techscaler is excited to be working with South of Scotland Enterprise to bring this workshop to the South of Scotland. Techscaler is a programme, run by CodeBase, that creates, develops, and scales startups by connecting founders with experts, teaching world-class playbooks, and hosting spaces for fellow founders to work and hang out. By working together with South of Scotland Enterprise, we are able to provide tech expertise and support for scalable businesses to grow.

This workshop will explore the customer problems you are solving, ideate on solutions for growth which are technology focussed, and give you an understanding of the different business models that support a tech product launch. We recommend attending in person at one of our locations to get the best experience, and to get your business on the right path to scaling, fast!

  • Social enterprises providing a service (community services, legal services,

  • Consultancies (e.g. ESG consultants, HR consultants, marketing consultants)
  • Software agencies (e.g. you’re creating apps/products 1-1 for clients already)
  • Marketing, PR & Digital agencies (e.g. you’re providing these services as retainers/one off projects)
