In case you haven't heard yet, here at Startacus we have just begun a great new year-long series of features in which we will be putting 12 of the UK and Ireland's most happening startup cities under our proverbial microscope to showcase the people, places and events that make them the great self starter cities that they are.
Thus far we have good long look at Belfast and Bristol and now we crank our necks northward to Scotland's largest city Glasgow.
Situated on the banks of the river Clyde the Glasgow city area is home to 1.7 million people, making it by far the most densely populated region in Scotland and one of the UK's largest urban areas. Long has Glasgow been a central component of the UK's economy first as a major sea port it then developed into a centre for manufacturing during the industrial revolution and grew to become widely known as the 'Second City of the Empire'.
Today Glasgow is an exciting metropolitan city which maintains a formidable reputation as a hub for education, commerce and culture with a unique and thriving startup scene.
Over the next month we will be exploring the enterprising people, the exciting places, creative stirrings and quirky events that make Glasgow the great startup city it is!
If you would like to tell your Glasgow startup tale, or have anything interesting to say about the city's people, events or culture then pop us an email to [email protected] and we can have a chat! Or click the link for more info on our Glasgow startup month.
