The service can facilitate introductions and meetings that could transform the future direction of an organisation.

What businesses say

The goal of GlobalScot

We know Scotland has the potential to do great things on a global scale. We’ve got rich talent, ambitious businesses, and innovative products and services.

But we also know that doing business can feel overwhelming. Many businesses don’t know where to start or don’t think they have the contacts they need to succeed. That’s where GlobalScot support comes in.

What’s more, it’s completely free and only takes ten minutes to sign up.
