Support For International Activity

If social enterprises are to operate beyond Scotland then a better understanding of international opportunities is necessary, together with a greater appetite and ability to seize them.

Awareness of international opportunities will be encouraged by the Observatory and existing sources of support will be connected to potential and early stage social enterprise exporters to take their first steps into international markets.

This may include one-to-one advice, networking events, accredited training, and support for starter market visits and participation in trade shows. Further bespoke events, guidance and features will be developed to highlight the potential areas of development and to ensure early engagement with our partners, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and SDI.

Are you a Scottish social enterprise or third sector organisation that is:

  • Considering selling products, services or works overseas?
  • Looking to scale, license or replicate your social enterprise?
  • Interested in increasing your social impact by working internationally?
  • Needing to improve your access to overseas customers to your Scottish business?

If so, we’re interested in hearing from you. Please contact us

  • You may also be eligible for support from one of our partners below.
