Webinar with the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce
In May 2020, Cabinet Secretary of Finance Kate Forbes asked Mark Logan, tech entrepreneur and former Skyscanner COO, to conduct a short-life review into how Scotland's tech sector can contribute to Scotland's economic recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic. The review’s recommendations are primarily concerned with stimulating and accelerating the maturity of Scotland’s “Technology Ecosystem”, with a focus on education, infrastructure and funding.
Join us as Mark Logan is interviewed on his newly published Scottish Technology Ecosystem Review, his recommendations to the Scottish Government and his hopes for the future for Scotland to be a global player on the technology arena by becoming a creator of scalable, sustainable tech businesses.
With over 25 years experience, Mark is focused on helping to nurture the start-up community in Scotland and the UK as an investor, non-executive director and advisor. Mark is also a Professor in the School of Computing Science at University of Glasgow.
