Alison currently heads up student company formation. Alison joined Launch.ed in April 2013 and has the role of providing business creation support and advice to students and recent alumni through one-on-one business support, workshops and clinics.
Alison’s early career was in marketing and market research with General Motors and Lucas. A brief interlude of world travel and crocodile counting was followed by a move into the equally exciting and varied world of business start-up and enterprise training. For the last 23 years Alison has been involved with business formation advice, training and micro finance. Latterly this has involved working with the Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust during which time she assisted in over 500 new starts spanning a broad base of industry sectors.
