Helen Glass was part of the assessment panel for Scottish EDGE on Friday.

Scottish EDGE is a competition aimed at identifying and supporting Scotland’s up-and-coming, innovative, high-growth potential, entrepreneurial talent.

I was delighted to be part of the food and drink assessment panel which represented a range of stakeholders across the supply chain, as well as a former EDGE winner. The diversity of panellists made for one of the most enjoyable and intensive of assessment days, with open sharing of experience and sector knowledge from all the panellists.

It was great to play our part in identifying new talent breaking into the sector – the future is vibrant with innovative new businesses and concepts. By the end of the day we were exhausted but definitely still smiling – it was a really positive experience.
