Innovators Magazine is delighted to announce that it is a founding partner of the new Innovation Academy.

We are working in conjunction with other organisations to support the Academy, which launches in our home city of Glasgow on 5 August, with its aim to become an integral part of the innovation economy.

Our magazine tagline is: ‘industries transforming our world’ and we focus on the sustainable industries leading that revolution.

So we were excited to learn of the Academy’s plans to develop accessible training courses in areas like fintech, cybersecurity and digital technology.
