Igniting Rural Enterprise: Growing the lifeblood of Scotland’s rural economy

Contact our team today

Supporting rural businesses to start-up and thrive is part of Elevator’s DNA. For over 20 we have worked with a diverse range of businesses in rural areas, from Aberdeenshire to South Lanarkshire.

We understand the unique challenges and opportunities that rural businesses face and work with start-ups, spin-offs and ambitious companies looking to accelerate their growth and champion rural business sustainability.

Our vision for rural town centre regeneration includes enterprise hubs and community hub satellites that support and encourage local networks and collaboration. Our Fraserburgh Enterprise Hub is a perfect example of where place-based focussed support has achieved a fundamental shift in enterprise engagement, overcoming the barriers which can come with starting a business away from traditional city centre levels of support.

A diverse range of new businesses are starting up all over rural Scotland and Elevator provides the support, training and connections to allow these businesses to achieve long-term growth, resilience and adaptability.

Our support covers a wide range of sectors including:  

  • Rural Tourism
  • Coastal Communities
  • Marine Energy
  • Rural Food & Drink
  • Agriculture and Horticulture
  • Scotland’s Green Agenda
  • And more…
