The centre was funded through UKSE alongside additional financial resources from Scottish Enterprise, Scottish Growth Fund and commercial lending partners, for a total of £3.5 million.

Despite the challenges posed by Covid, the QTV team has grown from 16 in 2019, to 35 permanent staff by July 2022, and expects to create at least a further eight roles in the next 18 months.
