Our Mission

To find, fuel and spark the next generation of business leaders in Scotland.

To create leaders capable of growing a more dynamic, vibrant Scottish economy.
The Saltire Scholars program gives undergraduate students from Scotland’s universities internship opportunities all over the world to gain experience and confidence from leading companies.

The Saltire Fellowship is for those who already have business experience. This intensive program starts at Babson College* in the USA and includes time in Silicon Valley and Shanghai to accelerate leadership development.

Entrepreneurial Scotland
Inspire. Develop. Connect.

We’re inspiring Scotland’s next generation of entrepreneurial leaders.
We’re using our global and local networks and accelerated international learning programs to support people - developing the right skills and mind-set to succeed.
We’re joining the dots in the Scottish entrepreneurial ecosystem - collaborating with businesses, universities, government, public and third sector organisations and the media.
We’re connecting people so that they can build relationships with those who have already succeeded, learn from their peers, and mentor each other.
In 2014, the Saltire Foundation came together with Entrepreneurial Exchange to form Entrepreneurial Scotland.

Entrepreneurial Scotland, where people can build skills, knowledge and confidence and then connect with each other to drive business and economic performance.
