The Melting Pot

The Melting Pot first opened its doors in October 2007, after several years’ development by a grassroots group of like-minded folk in Edinburgh, led by Founder and CEO, Claire Carpenter. 

Looking back, my dream was to create a special resource base – a collaborative working and learning environment, in my home city. I wanted to bring together interesting people who do interesting things, and to develop a dynamic and diverse community that shared a sense of purpose.” 

The Melting Pot harnesses the power to ignite and effect social change by connecting people and supporting their ideas, passions and expertise. In turn, we help Scotland fulfil its economic, social, cultural and environmental potential.
