  • What happened on 14 June was terrible. The fire that devastated the Grenfell Tower took 79 lives and changes many more. In the days and weeks following the fire there has been such a clear need to support those effected. So what can the people of Glasgow do to help?

  • Technology is changing our lives at an ever increasing rate and by extension changing how businesses operate. Therefore businesses should be investing in technology but it can be very expensive. A typical mobile app can cost easily over £20,000 but RookieOven tenant Add Jam have a solution for making mobile affordable and accessible to more businesses - Pocket Leap.

  • RookieOven works hard to create a better startup community in Scotland and we strongly feel a large part of this is taking time to foster the next generation of tech talent. We do this with our Academy programmes that have run over the past 12 months but we're alway eager to see more happening to inspire young people and give them fresh opportunities they otherwise wouldn't have.

  • With RookieOven I've always tried my best to shine a spotlight on tech companies and happenings across Scotland. The blog has covered startups from Ayr to Aberdeen over the years but last week, for the first time, I added a startup based in California to the RookieOven job board. If we're all about helping Scottish startups why would we do that? Well I think you don't necessarily need to be based in Scotland full time to play a part in our tech community. Here's a few examples.
