The Mountain Bike Centre of Scotland is to a workshop at the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, centering on the engineering, manufacturing and commercial opportunities in the bicycle business.

Taking place on Thursday, February 9th, the evening workshop is free to attend to those with an interest in the cycling business and aims to deliver a few hours of speed pitching, assisting entrepreneurs to quickly find partners.

Among topics for discussion during the evening the schedule sets aside time for common business problems such as obtaining funding, design issues, IP shortages, manufacturing issues and market intelligence.
