MIT Entrepreneurship Development Programme 2018

Four entrepreneurs from the Highlands and Islands have given their businesses a global boost through attending one of the world’s most renowned business executive education courses.

The group, from businesses in Inverness, Aviemore, Alness and Mull, are among 80 entrepreneurs from across the globe who took part in the Entrepreneurship Development Programme at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston in January 2018.

They secured sponsorship from Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) to attend this year’s programme to gain inspiration and insight from globally renowned entrepreneurs and academics, and learn the tools they need to grow their businesses in national and international markets.
