Edinburgh wins entrepreneur and global city awards
Edinburgh collected the ‘British Entrepreneurial City of the Year’ award recently - beating London, Manchester Cambridge and Leeds to the title. I was at the ceremony with former council colleagues - many congratulations for all their work building start-up support networks.
Now we've also got the gong for 'Global Cities of the Future' from the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) Awards 2016, beating Hong Kong and Chicago to the top spot..
Brilliant news and brilliant work from the likes of Edinburgh Creative Exchange whose innovative links with China were amongst those recognised.
There's a lot of great work is being done to attract international investment in the city, many positive signs for the future! http://www.investinedinburgh.com/why…/award-winning-capital/
