News, Events & Resources

Join Greenbackers for breakfast and in-person networking at ‘The Gaitherin’, hosted by University of Glasgow.  

Greenbackers Investment Capital’s Managing Partner, Robert Hokin will be speaking at the re-launching of The Gaitherin, a series of in-person events bringing together business and academia. The first session will cover the legacy of COP26.

Hear from both industry and academics on what, if anything, has changed since COP26 came to Glasgow, and how the discussions from COP26 are likely to impact organisations in future.

  • What are the challenges set down by COP26?
  • How are businesses planning to meet these, and what are their priorities in a world of shifting sustainability targets?
  • What can the latest research into business models, legislation, and behaviour change tell us about how to ensure a positive legacy of COP26 for Glasgow?

As always, we will close with rapid fire pitches. If you have a burning idea, concept, or a novel project you’re working on and would be open to the possibility of collaboration, please get in touch with Mike Gray at michael.g.gray@glasgow.ac.uk to book your 3-minute pitch slot. Breakfast (and caffeine) provided!

About The Gaitherin:

The Gaitherin brings together Scotland’s most innovative academic and business minds for regular networking events. We start with a bite to eat and networking, then a short keynote, followed by a round of rapid-fire pitches, where anybody has a chance to pitch an idea, discuss a new concept or project for 3 minutes. At The Gaitherin we aim to find synergies between business and research and look for areas where we can collaborate. Everyone is welcome, there’s no limitation on areas of expertise.
