Have your say

BUSINESSES in the Lothians have less than four weeks to apply for a £40,000 government-backed initiative from Co-operative Development Scotland.

CDS’s Collaboration Prize aims to encourage businesses to consider working together and pitch their idea for a new consortium co-operative before the August 3 ­deadline.

Sarah Deas, chief executive of CDS, said: “Collaboration plays a key part in the way businesses operate in 2013.”
