Scottish Enterprise

Scottish Enterprise is Scotland’s national economic development agency.

We’re committed to growing the Scottish economy for the benefit of all, helping create more quality jobs and a brighter future for the whole of Scotland, with the transition to net zero at the heart of our focus. We work with partners in the public and private sector to identify and maximise opportunities to deliver a significant, lasting effect on the economy.

We support thousands of companies across the country, helping catalyse the changes in our economy that will have a long-term positive impact on Scotland’s business competitiveness around the world. In doing so, we’re creating significantly more, better jobs, helping people fulfil their potential.

Scottish Enterprise’s Growth Investments Team has been funding high growth potential companies since 2003. Our aim is to boost funding levels for globally ambitious Scottish companies, ensuring the right levels of funding, from the right sources, get to the right companies at the right time. We can provide co-investment into early stage and established Scottish companies raising equity, alongside private investors, including business angels, angel syndicates, venture capital groups and corporate investors, and loan funding to companies with an ability to repay the debt. Financial Readiness experts can also offer support and advice and can help companies access a range of funding from the private and public sector, including bank funding, equity funding, loan funding and grants.

Our international arm, Scottish Development International, promotes Scotland as a place for investment and trade. Securing more international trade and investment is vitally important in helping to create a more dynamic and globally competitive economy in Scotland.

We are helping to build Scotland’s future today.
