Clinics - 2018

Tuesday 27th March - Glentress, nr Peebles 

At the Mountain Bike Centre of Scotland we are here to help any business in MTB or anyone thinking that they might have an idea for a new product, but don't know where to start!
If that sounds like you or someone you know, why not pop along to our clinic and chat through your idea with us.
Support provided is free to Scottish businesses.
Even if you're just not sure the idea is viable join us for a chat. 

To make an appointment for the day - email us at mtb@napier.ac.uk or give us a call on 01721 722172 to discuss.

Why should Scottish businesses investigate product development opportunities in Mountain Biking?

  • UK 2011 mountain biking accessories sales: £155m

We have a world-class reputation for our trails and participation. Now we want to capitalise on the opportunity that product sales bring.

The clinics are your opportunity to meet 1:1 with MTBCoS, Edinburgh Napier University and DMBinS to discuss your ideas and how we can possibly help. We will be offering one-hour slots, meaning you don’t have to take a whole day away from the office. This is a totally informal, non-committal opportunity to allow you to start exploring possibilities….so what have you got to lose?

So if you are interested in exploring the opportunities for your business or your product idea then get in touch and book a clinic appointment today.
