Corporate Partners

We’re working with our Corporate Partners to unlock Scotland’s entrepreneurial potential.

One thing that makes our vision achievable is that we know that in Scotland we have the connections, scale and energy to work collaboratively towards a common goal.

Our corporate partners bring expertise, experience and resources in support of our Leadership Development Programmes. Each Corporate Partner has a significant presence in the Scottish business community, and a proven track record in backing entrepreneurial leaders and encouraging business growth. Working together with our members, we believe we can make Scotland the most entrepreneurial society in the world.

Our experience of navigating complex markets and adapting to change, helps us balance risk and reward. The investment expertise we call upon on as part of a truly global asset manager, combined with our long-standing experience of advising clients, is what sets us apart.
