Whatever your business needs

Scotland’s business support network is responding to the multitude of challenges facing businesses right now with a new awareness campaign ‘whatever your business needs’.

Every business in Scotland needs something different to help them achieve their goals. It could be support in starting-up, expertise to help increase sales, or advice on your strategy.

It’s been a challenging time for the industry, to navigate through the pandemic, with businesses adapting to survive.

As we start to re-emerge at the other end, we want you to know that the continued support of public agencies across Scotland is available, whatever situation you find yourself in.

There's a network of support across our partners such as Business Gateway, the Enterprise Agencies and Skills Development Scotland. Our partners can help with expert advice and resources for every step of your journey. And you can access it all from one place.

The Find Business Support website has a range of support including online resources, webinars, funding applications and information including:

  • Advice on how to start-up
  • Strategic advice on finding new markets or increasing sales
  • Innovation support to identify new products and services
  • How to start-up or run a more sustainable business
  • Important information on Russian sanctions for businesses in Scotland
  • COVID-19 support and advice

So, whatever your business needs, take the first step and visit the Find Business Support website.
