STEP Business Gateway

Stirling, Scotland

Grey Nickel works as a specialist marketing advisor for STEP Business Gateway, offering Stirling businesses marketing support. We have worked on an interesting mix of local businesses, mostly in the tourism sector, but also sports, counselling and clothing. They are short contracts where we are only a temporary member of their team, but we love to keep in touch and watch the local businesses thrive.


A Variety of Projects

Roots Cycles
A family-owned, bike specialist based in Doune, the gateway to the Trossachs. Priding themselves on knowledge and customer service, Roots is a successful part of the local community and is passionate about everything ‘bike’.

The highlight was the opportunity created to market their services at the UCI World Cycle Championships supporters village.



Launch Learn – The Arpine Group
