ENTREPRENEURIAL Spark, the business incubator and accelerator, will open a centre in Edinburgh in February.

Operating in partnership with Edinburgh Napier University and City of Edinburgh Council, the new centre will be home to up to 50 start-ups.

Jim Duffy, co-founder of Entrepreneurial Spark, said the new centre will build on the success the organisation has achieved at its facilities in Glasgow and Ayrshire, which have supported more than 140 start-ups.
