This fund is for organisations that support Scottish entrepreneurs, start-up activity, or enterprise education. We're looking for ideas that fill gaps and propel the business community forward, with a particular focus on helping entrepreneurs from under-represented groups.
Value: £10,000 and £50,000. In special circumstances, a very limited number of higher awards may be available if the proposal demonstrates clear strategic economic importance and impact.
Closing Date: 25th September 2023
The Ecosystem Fund is now open to proposals from ecosystem partners and intermediary organisations. Proposals are welcomed for funding to help deliver innovative and inclusive entrepreneurship support activities across Scotland and internationally.
The fund is an evolution of the Scottish Government’s STER Tech fund, in line with Scotland's National Strategy for Economic Transformation (NSET). Specifically, it draws on the Pathways Report recommendations to foster entrepreneurial education, diversity, and inclusion activity, encouraging a broader range of partners to submit proposals for project funding.
The Ecosystem Fund is a Scottish Government initiative delivered by Scottish Enterprise.
