First Minister Nicola Sturgeon helps launch GGS and Napier’s new partnership

The First Minister Nicola Sturgeon last night helped us launch our new partnership with Edinburgh Napier University and Bright Red Triangle. Edinburgh Napier University, our new parent organisation, hosted a special invitation only reception at their Craiglockhart Campus in Edinburgh. The following people made rousing, informative and inspiring speeches:

Morna Simpson, Founder of Girl Geek Scotland
Gordon Stuart, Informatic Ventures
Sally Smith, Dean of Computing, Edinburgh Napier University
Andrea Nolan, Principal, Edinburgh Napier University
Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister

Then the guests were led to the foyer where refreshments were served, networking was had, and tables with GGS information topics were laid out prompting discussion, ideas, plans, and support for the following areas:

Technology and Startup Cultures
Thinking Big Requires a Change of Mind
Big Data & The Global Supply Chain
Creating Learning Resources Online & Off
Diversity Workshop with ScotlandJS
Financial Support

GGS have plans, BIG PLANS. We hope you will help us achieve them!

If you are bursting with ideas on a subject that GGS might be interested in, please get in touch via the website or by emailing
