 Are you based in rural Stirling? Do you have a business issue you need help with? Get the answer and find out what support is available.

 43% of Stirling’s businesses are located in rural areas. We understand that you are faced with your own unique business challenges. That’s why we ensure that businesses like yours are kept informed, able to participate and benefit from existing support programs available. Whether you have a question about making the most of new and emerging technologies in rural areas, enhancing innovation, creating business and job opportunities, ensuring that rural communities are attractive to a workforce it needs, enabling the transition of rural areas to a low carbon economy or something else this event is for you.

This is a panel question, answer and discussion event. Each panellist will take 10 minutes to introduce themselves, then we will take questions from the audience. Questions can also be submitted prior to the event at registration.
