Lots of exciting news from Salient Point this week, so I thought I should share it on the blog!
Fahd Baig joins Salient Point
Salient Point is pleased to announce that Fahd Baig, who graduated as a Saltire Fellow in 2011, is joining the team as an associate.
Fahd is a hi-tech entrepreneur, having extensive experience of setting up and leading business and marketing strategies of award-winning technology businesses. Fahd has an exceptional understanding of how an entrepreneurial start-up works, and specialises in helping businesses define their technology and products, get to first customers and raise investment from government organisations and private investors.
We are fortunate to have Fahd Baig as an associate, and it is a great pleasure to have another Saltire Fellow working with us. This move will increase the number of young companies we can help to make significant progress, as well as increasing the breadth of skills and experience we have available.
Fahd will be contributing to this blog in the near future!
Salient Point to Sponsor Invest, Inspire, Succeed
Salient Point has signed up as a Silver Sponsor for “Invest, Inspire, Succeed”, an event run by the Saltire Sirens in support of the Saltire Foundation.
Speakers at the event on 7th September 2011 will include Bob Keiller, Mick Jackson, Neil McMartin and Sandy Kennedy, and the event will be chaired by John Anderson of the Entrepreneurial Exchange.
Ian Stevenson, founder of Salient Point, said “Participating in the Saltire Foundation Fellowship in 2009 was a life-changing experience for me, and I am pleased to be able to support this fundraising event. The Saltire Sirens have put together a great line-up of speakers, and I am sure it is going to be a great evening.”
Tickets are on sale now – an excellent opportunity to enjoy an evening of inspiring business speakers while contributing to a great cause.
