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.

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...
Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.
A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
