Abstract

The aim of this report is to provide an in-depth understanding of the context, challenges, roles, resources, capabilities, requirements and possibilities to transform women’s enterprise support in Scotland.

We report the findings of research interviews with the Women in Enterprise Action Group members, local enterprise agencies and focus groups across 11 regions of Scotland with over a hundred women entrepreneurs. We also provide 11 case illustrations of existing ‘promising’ practices (rather than the misleading notion of ‘best’ practice) and a case of ‘illustrating’ demand, all evident in sustainable models of women’s enterprise support that could be widely adopted in Scotland to implement our recommendations.
