Scottish Enterprise is Scotland’s national economic development agency. It is committed to growing the Scottish economy for the benefit of all, helping create more quality jobs, and a brighter future for every region.

We’re thrilled to have Scottish Enterprise as a sponsor for Filament STAC. Scottish Enterprise see the value in what STAC has to offer the IoT sector in Scotland and will be supporting STAC with a grant of £223,000 over three years, expert advice, and excellent industry connections. Our partnership with Scottish Enterprise will help founders with pioneering ideas build start-ups that will disrupt their industries.

I am delighted to see this first Smart Things Accelerator Centre launched as it’s vital that Scottish manufacturers embrace IoT to scale up, internationalise and also use the opportunities from ‘smart things’ to improve connectivity, capability, monitoring and data, not least to help drive our green economic recovery.”

“Filament STAC offers manufacturers looking to scale up the support to get their high-tech products, often requiring significant investment, into production. It’s fantastic to see the expertise and collaboration from Scottish firm Filament and the depth of IoT expertise at CENSIS, as well as international partners, particularly Plexus, come together. This is a key action from Scotland’s Manufacturing Recovery Plan and we at Scottish Enterprise are delighted to play our part in getting this manufacturing accelerator off the ground and ready to welcome its first cohort of businesses.”


Thank you Scottish Enterprise for sponsoring Filament STAC to support our mission to build Scotland’s next generation of internationally successful companies and future leaders.
