Strathclyde People is published by White Light Media for the University of Strathclyde, and I manage the editorial for White Light Media.
The autumn issue has an enterprise theme, and as well as chatting to home-grown billionaires, we have also visited Whitelee wind farm for a picture-led feature on renewable energy; explored the final frontier for a feature on space research; learned about business in the Big Apple and brought together a number of inspirational alumni stories.

38minutes, the social network I manage, has inspired a spin-off site for European entrepreneurs.
EU-funded business magazine Creative Growth has run a special feature on the importance of collaboration and networks, with 38minutes featuring as a key success story.
The article reports that 38minutes inspired Jozsef Gonda, MD of marketing business Forensys Communication, to create a network for entrepreneurs. After hearing about the success of 38 in Scotland, Jozsef decided to develop a website with useful information regarding tenders, EU funds, development opportunities, creative sector trends and opportunities for collaboration. “We wanted to emphasize to other entrepreneurs that cooperation brings opportunities,” he says.
38minutes also inspired the EU cinema network Support Your Local Cinema. Rachael Castell modelled the site on 38minutes after a recommendation from GFT’s Jen Davies that 38 was not to be missed. Jen has used the site for everything from marketing and recruitment to inspiration and blogging.
It’s great to hear that our small but ambitious network is attracting international attention!
