Its leaders now have sights on winning £150,000 of new business in the first year in Dundee.

The BIG Partnership’s clients in Dundee, and surrounding areas, include entrepreneurial support organisation, Elevator, Dundee Rep Theatre and technology spin-outs from the University of St Andrews, SA Instrumentation and Photosynergy Ltd.

All of these will be serviced from BIG’s new office at City Quay in Dundee.

Zoe Ogilvie, director at The BIG Partnership, said: “We have strong ties to Dundee, with a history of working with clients in the city, as well as in Fife and Perthshire. Opening permanent premises here widens our offering to a city which has huge potential.

“Dundee is in the middle of a £1 billion regeneration, which is expected to create more than 7,000 jobs, see the opening of an international centre of design and herald a major redevelopment of its train station. With further plans to open more hotels, bars and restaurants, it’s the perfect time to be launching a base here.”

As well as regeneration work along the river, the Tay Cities Deal will see Angus, Dundee, Perthshire and North East Fife bid to receive up to £400 million worth of funding to take forward infrastructure projects. This will support business growth in some of Dundee’s key sectors, such as tourism, food and drink, financial and business services, creative industries and life sciences.

Ogilvie added: “We have been pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome we have had from the local business community and are excited to be part of the city’s very bright future as a result of all the recent developments and the potential of the Tay Cities Deal.”
