We want to stimulate Scotland’s economic ambition – creating an innovative, high-wage and highly productive economy with a competitive, international market presence and a focus on high value opportunities.

Scottish Enterprise

What we do

Building Scotland’s international competitiveness through innovation, internationalisation, investment and inclusive growth.

Our ambition

Reflecting the core vision set out in the Government’s Economic Strategy, we want “Scotland to be an innovative, high wage and high productivity economy that competes in international markets and focuses on high value goods and services". To achieve this, we want to ‘shift the dial’ in Scotland’s economic performance.

Our strategic priorities

We’re guided by four critical, but closely-connected drivers of growth. Addressing these growth drivers will underpin everything we do and the way in which we engage with our partners, stakeholders and customers.

Internationalisation - Encouraging international trade and investment to build on Scotland's global reputation.

Innovation - Inspiring Scottish business growth through inventive new products and processes.

Investment - Helping secure investment to allow companies and sectors to expand internationally.

Inclusive Growth - Developing our talent to boost Scotland's dynamic, entrepreneurial workforce.
