Name: Scottish Enterprise

Type of organization: Regional or local development agency


Scottish Enterprise is Scotland's main economic development agency and a non-departmental public body of the Scottish Government.

We work with partners in the public and private sectors to identify and exploit the best opportunities to build Scotland’s sustainable international competitiveness and deliver a significant, lasting effect on the Scottish economy.

We have a strong focus on four critical and inter-connected drivers of growth for our economy - internationalisation, innovation, investment and inclusive growth.

Addressing these growth drivers underpins everything we do across our remit of:

Stimulating positive change in the business environment - working with public and private sector partners on major infrastructure projects to unlock growth potential.

Helping Businesses to Grow - working alongside companies to understand their business, help them develop an ambitious plan for growth and support them to achieve that.

Increasing Trade and Investment - promoting Scotland’s strengths in overseas markets to attract new foreign direct investment and to secure trade opportunities for those sectors where Scotland has internationally competitive capabilities.

Building competitive strength in Scotland’s Sectors - working with public and private sector partners to address specific threats and challenges and emerging opportunities by capitalising on Scotland’s unique natural assets, talent, research excellence and world class infrastructure.
