Kristy Dorsey's Monday Interview this week is with Steven Morris, founder and chief executive of the ESM syndicate based in Stirling, a group of 85 investors including a network of expatriate Scots he met during the earlier years in his career when he travelled extensively.

ESM has invested more than £13 million across 16 early-stage Scottish technology companies since it was set up in 2012, most recently contributing the lion’s share of the £350,000 raised in May by Edinburgh’s Time For You Care, followed by Glasgow-based Bellrock Technology’s £1m fundraising in June

In Business Voices this week, Professor Iain MacRitchie, founder and chief executive of MCR Pathways and a visiting professor at the University of Strathclyde, says: "The return of calmer waters brings a once-in-lifetime opportunity to rebuild back better.

"Let’s be very clear on what we need to focus on and see through."

In Mark Williamson’s SME Focus, Carlene Macnair and her brother Adam Macnair talk about Gilsland Park, a family-owned and run holiday park on the outskirts of North Berwick in East Lothian.

They said: “It’s been a family affair since the 1930s when our great grandfather Dr Robert Macnair, an Edinburgh GP, acquired the Old Fever Hospital, just outside North Berwick.

"He believed strongly in the healing properties of fresh seaside air and deemed it the perfect place for his patients to rest and recuperate. When our grandfather, a shepherd, took the site over, he started the caravan park alongside a smallholding on the surrounding land.

“Gilsland has been in our blood since childhood. We are two of eight grandchildren who, from a very young age, turned out, along with mums, dads, aunties, uncles and cousins to help run the site, in return for a huge, famous Sunday dinner cooked by granny Pat.”
