We understand that many different providers are offering different types of support. It can often be very difficult and frustrating to navigate through this maze. We hope that the diagram below will help clarify where exactly BRIGHT IDEA SCOTLAND fits in.
The majority of support available requires you to have a well developed business proposition before they can take you on. This means that just having an idea itself is often not enough. You have to be able to clearly explain what your idea is, what it does, and how others can benefit from it. You will also have to show that there is a market for it and back it up with some sort of proof.
The aim of BRIGHT IDEA SCOTLAND is to help you move your idea from the initial 'aha moment' to a point where other support agencies will be able to provide further support.
Any person or company, including private individuals, sole traders and micro businesses, based in Scotland with an idea for a novel product or service can take advantage of the services provided by BRIGHT IDEA SCOTLAND.
