Here at STV, we’re proud to work with Scottish businesses through the STV Growth Fund and to support them build their brand, engage locally and increase sales. Our Fund is open for Scottish business and our team is ready to work and support you as Scotland begins to reopen.

Join us at this month’s STV Growth Academy, hosted by Angela Wylie, Business Development Director at STV, and hear from our fantastic lineup of speakers.

Our first speaker is Maggie Sheridan, Key Account Manager at STV, who will be discussing the STV Growth Fund and how your business can access it. We will also be joined by Duncan McCready, Senior Research Executive at STV, who will be sharing insight into ScotPulse, what it is, and how it can help your business establish a strong brand. Duncan will also be sharing powerful findings from new ScotPulse research to help you to understand new consumer behaviours.

For our panel discussion, Angela Wylie and Ronnie Shearer, Business Development Manager at STV will chat with some of our STV Growth Fund members, to discuss their TV advertising journeys and how the Fund is helping them drive fantastic results for their business.

You will also have the opportunity to ask our team any questions you have on TV advertising – you can submit your questions after you register or simply ask us on the day.

About the STV Growth Fund 

We launched the STV Growth Fund in May 2018 to drive economic growth, particularly in the Scottish SME sector. In March 2020, we doubled the Growth Fund to £20m to make advertising even more affordable and accessible for Scottish SMEs and capitalise on the unrivalled connection which STV has with consumers – reaching 80% of Scots every month.
