  • Are you based in the North East of Scotland?

  • Is sustainability important to you and your business?

  • Could you benefit from the knowledge, resources and opportunities born from working with a global brand?

Allow us to introduce the game-changing growth impact programme that could transform your future…



Elevator is thrilled to be delivering Shell’s flagship growth impact programme, Shell LiveWire. The programme launched in Scotland in 1982 before expanding across the globe to operate in 20 countries to strengthen local economies through entrepreneurship, innovation, and meaningful employment.

Elevator is now looking for applicants for the launch of an exciting new chapter in Shell LiveWire’s story where participating businesses will be given the tools, coaching and knowledge to transform their growth impact. We’re experts at empowering entrepreneurs and believe the most lucrative investment you can make is in yourself – after all, your business can’t grow if you don’t.


We also understand the challenges business owners face when commitment and passion alone aren’t enough. Every entrepreneur’s momentum stalls – that’s when you need support to shift gear, challenge your perceptions and embrace your ultimate potential.
