Airdrie and Shotts amongst top 3 in UK as small business hub

Airdrie and Shotts highest small business growth in Scotland over the last year.

Here's some of what I had to say on the news, in my comments to Emma Newlands at The Scotsman:

"We sit between two major Scottish cities and are well-placed to encourage sustainable growth, through our road and rail connections to wider-Scotland and the UK. I believe that this news reflects the area’s transition towards innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship - as Scotland trailblazes its way to a vibrant, growing economy.


"With a population of over 70,000 consumers, strong connectivity and generous Scottish Government support, I would encourage many more small businesses to consider Airdrie and Shotts as the place to unleash their full potential.”
