Make sure that you're a part of it.
Glasgow for Business Week runs from October 8-12 with a host of free, inspiring events. The organisers see it as a call to action, a driver to encourage new business start-ups and to provide the knowledge resources they need.
These aren't just theoretical, blue-skies happenings. They're about the real life practicalities essential to making a business successful. You've had the flash of brilliance; you know you can make it work. But how do you go about starting up?
Whatever your sector, your age or your ambitions, the Week will provide you with opportunities to learn from experts and entrepreneurs.
How do I go about creating a good business plan that will impress potential lenders? Do I need an accountant? What about VAT registration? How do I go about creating a limited company or employing someone? Find out from people who know and who will guide you.
Experts such as Social Media Week Glasgow, KILTR, Kube Networks, Energise 2.0 and partners including Princes Square are just some of the organisations supporting this year's Week, which is led by Glasgow City Council's Development and Regeneration Services.
One of the key themes this year is the exponential development of digital technology. Two days of Digital Glasgow events and workshops (October 8/9) will help you gain a solid understanding of how to exploit the opportunities in the ever-changing virtual world.
Expert Dr Jim Hamill, of Social Business firm Energise 2.0, will be explaining how to implement new digital technologies such as e-commerce and the Cloud to deliver lower costs, improved efficiency, more effective sales and marketing and enhanced customer relationships.
Kube Networks, who provide a full range of voice, data, hosted VoIP and inbound services, will be explaining why the Cloud will revolutionise the world economy.
Already worth around $74 billion around the world, that estimate is expected to double within the year with the potential to create 226,000 jobs by 2015.
Roy Gardner, International & Marketing Director at City of Glasgow College is behind the week.
He says: "The College is once again delighted to support Glasgow for Business Week. As the first college to establish an incubation hub in conjunction with Digital Enterprise Glasgow (DEG), it is very encouraging to see how many hubs have now been established. Through this partnership, we have seen numerous businesses flourish and go on to bigger and better things. This is testament to our commitment as Scotland's largest college to continually serve the business community of Glasgow and beyond."
And speaking of incubation hubs, there will be a chance to hear more about what they mean to Glasgow's creative entrepreneurs at the Creative Industries Day (October 11).
Dr Alex McCluskey is Head of Creative Industries at Cardonald College and is the power behind the Creative Cardonald Incubator Hub, which has developed much of the talent that will be on display during the Day: "We want to encourage young people to think about setting up a business; to talk and network with those who have been going for one to three years and to really make use of the opportunities.
"Creative start-ups need resources and our incubation hub meets that need with hardware that includes video making and editing equipment; sewing workshops and screen printing machinery."
Ambitious young people looking to kick-start their career will also be able to make connections during Happenin' at Glasgow for Business Week (October 9-10) with employers and organisations offering job opportunities and career advice.
At the Business Opportunity Day the winners of this year's Glasgow's Got Business Talent will be revealed. The tough Dragon's Den-style competition will be decided between the expert judges and the top prize is worth more than £10,000 of business support.
Last year's winners will be there to talk about how winning the competition helped them.
