THE North East business community has extended a warm welcome to a band of start-up enterprises during the 10th annual Granite City Expo.
Five recently-established businesses, FinQ, Carbon Zero, Outsource Business Development, uCruit and Grampian Trailer Centre joined the ranks of exhibitors at the one-day forum.
The first-ever online Granite Expo was supported by Stronachs and International School Aberdeen (ISA), and the official opening was performed by Aberdeen Lord Provost, Barney Crockett.
Nicholas Little, ISA head of school, said: “ISA was delighted to be taking part in the Granite Expo in a year where we have had to prepare for the unexpected.
“It’s never been more important to be able to adapt to a fast changing and complex world as it has been this past year and education plays a vital role in thriving through present challenges.
“Whether its individually or economically, a progressive education gives us the resilience to adapt to new circumstances.”
