Our Foundation

Developing Leaders

Our Foundation is the charitable arm through which Entrepreneurial Scotland raises funds to develop the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders. We support world-class development for high potential leaders at the early or mid-career stages through our programmes. The people we believe will be the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders and contribute to Scotland’s success.

Founded and nurtured by the GlobalScot network, the Saltire Foundation is a registered, independent Scottish charity whose mission is to find, fuel and spark the next generation of business leaders in Scotland.

Our History

Founded in 2007 our Foundation is a non-political, not for profit organisation that is reliant on visionary individuals who want to see a more enterprising Scotland. We share our mission with our sister organisations, the Saltire Foundation USA and the Saltire Foundation Canada.
