Simon's enthusiasm for the research presented by Research Stream 2 was evident. He was particularly intrigued by the exploration of micro, meso, and macro perspectives being investigated and by the potential impact the findings could have on local businesses and global competitiveness. The session provided the team with practical direction, incorporating feedback from businesses Dr. Raby works with. He also offered initial thoughts on what would be impactful for both practice and academia within the projects.

Thanks to Professor Esther Tippmann from the University of Galway for organising the session.

ScaleUp Week will be held from June 17 to 20 and features several online sessions that anyone can join. For more details, visit ScaleUp Week.
