Our Programmes

We support the development of leaders, across all sectors and industries, to think, act and lead entrepreneurially. At any stage, from early career to growing a business. We offer programmes for students and leaders who want to effectively lead change & growth.

Entrepreneurial Leaders are individuals who actively evaluate the purpose, effectiveness & impact of all that they do then lead the delivery of optimum outputs. They possess and utilise a blend of attributes & skills; curiosity & drive are their natural way of being and they consistently nurture others.

It is inherent within every Entrepreneurial Leaders’ DNA to ignite and fuel the entrepreneurial culture within their organisation. Our programmes are designed to do two things; To identify those with the potential to be entrepreneurial then nurture that potential and To help existing leaders progress and not only grow themselves but their businesses. Whether you are looking to bring people with that entrepreneurial spark into your business, infuse some entrepreneurial thinking into your existing team or looking to grow your own leadership ability we have a programme to suit your needs.

Can Do Collective

The Can Do Collective is a connected community on a mission to build a world-leading entrepreneurial, innovative and creative society.

The Collective is a made up of 60+ enterprise support leaders and organisations who are working together to ensure that Scotland has a connected ecosystem to enable entrepreneurs of all kinds to flourish.

The Can Do Collective has grown and developed since 2013, following the Scottish Government led gathering of 300 local and international entrepreneurs and ecosystem builders, united in their shared belief that Scotland has always been a ‘Can Do’ nation. This milestone forum marked the beginning of a journey to explore how they could build a world-class entrepreneurial ecosystem. Together they launched the ‘Scotland Can Do’ ambition, as a shared statement of intent and joined-up approach to enterprise support across the public, private and social enterprise sectors.
