The new service, VentureNavigator funded by the UK government, aims to improve the success rate of British businesses.
Kevin Cullen, Director of Research and Enterprise at the University of Glasgow, the only Scottish university in the consortium, said: “Glasgow is delighted to be part of the Venture Navigator project. We have a strong tradition of innovative support for innovation and entrepreneurs - Venture Navigator will significantly enhance that support.”
VentureNavigator will offer impartial, expert advice to businesses and provide access to a comprehensive library of resources. The dedicated website will also support an online community for businesses and entrepreneurs to network and share knowledge.
VentureNavigator will launch during Enterprise Week on Tuesday 13 November when a panel of experienced entrepreneurs and business people answer questions online from users. The online panel will include former dragon in the BBC’s ‘Dragon’s Den’ and Chairman of Library House, Doug Richard and Al Gosling, founder and CEO of The Extreme Group.
Business owners, entrepreneurs or anyone with business idea looking for advice are invited to pre-register with the service at:
One lucky registrant will also win the chance to attend a face-to-face meeting with Annika Bosanquet, winner of the 2004 Enterprising Young Brit award and founder of wrapping and packaging company Wrapology.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
