Finding Partners Abroad: Exploring Scotland’s Tech Ecosystem

6.2 Scottish Leadership Exchange Event Post

As companies emerge from a pandemic-enforced pivot from business as usual, leadership teams have an interesting opportunity before them. Until just last year, most regional tech companies were not only US-centric, they were headquartered-centric, with few processes, practices and systems in place to overcome physical distance.

But Covid-19 changed all that, and with those changes a huge obstacle to international expansion had been removed. Companies have been discovering, sometimes to their surprise, that they are much better placed to become truly global companies than they ever were before.

Technology Association of Oregon partnered with Scottish Development International (SDI) for a virtual presentation focused on how Scotland is helping businesses and investors develop new models of working, build talented teams, and access the support needed to create sustainable growth – globally.

During the presentation they discussed:

  • The Data Lab: Whose mission is to help Scotland maximize value from data and lead the world to a data powered future.
  • ScotlandIS: The industry body for digital tech, and the cluster management for building, supporting and enabling Scotland’s digital technology ecosystem
  • Workforce: Internationally recognized as one of the best trained, most reliable and cost-competitive labour forces in the world.
  • Partnerships & Networks: Access to both the private and public sector, academia, industry partners and supply chain to help you make the right connections for your business to flourish in Scotland.
