"We are really delighted to be selected onto the Pioneers Program,” Co-Wheels Director Richard Falconer told The Herald. “We hope that the program will give our social enterprise access to really powerful resources and the right connections for us to assess new business opportunities in the future within our sector and to use as a platform from which we can grow and expand our social enterprise.”
