Sir Tom Hunter has called for the Scottish Government’s new ten year economic strategy to “free” entrepreneurs from “unnecessary bureaucracy” to let entrepreneurs grow.

In an column in The Times, Hunter called for the government to offer more “efficient access to funding” and to create a landscape where politicians supported entrepreneurs.

He argued: “We are all in this together; for Scotland’s future we need to step up and deliver more champions like TVSquared.”

Hunter also called for the Scottish Government to “scale Scottish Edge, as it works” as he alluded to the recent $160m sale of TVSquared to Innovid.

Smeaton was an early winner of Scottish Edge — a competition aimed at identifying and supporting entrepreneurial talent — and the £50,000 grant let him buy a round-the-world ticket to listen and learn.

He claimed when the company was initially funded founder Calum Smeaton “stuck his neck out” and used his own cash to fund the venture for six months.
