Edinburgh YP - East Coast Entrepreneurs event

Edinburgh YP & Firm Handshake

This is the first event from DWF Edinburgh's Young Professionals Group in conjunction with Firm Handshake, a networking group based in Glasgow & Edinburgh which hosts social networking events for young professionals (no matter what discipline).

We have invited three local entrepreneurs to share with us their experiences, products and words of wisdom for the early stages of your career.

Our speakers will discuss:

  • The ultimate career change: from 30 years in corporate services to establishing a brewery in the Scottish Borders (Richard White, Freewheelin' Brewery Co. Peebles)
  • The big career choice: cocktails or medicine? (Sonny Charles, Tipple Box)
  • Winning Scottish Young Entrepreneur of the Year: how it was achieved and what came next (Stuart Ebdy, UK Gift Box)

As part of the event you will also be treated to Tipple Box cocktails, Freewheelin' beer and local street food.

If you have any burning questions that you would like us to raise on the night, or have any queries, please contact Lucy Davidson
