Royal Bank of Scotland Entrepreneurship

The Royal Bank are proud to support the thriving FinTech community in Scotland across financial and business development functions. Through our various entrepreneurship programmes, we provide businesses and business owners across Scotland with the tools, networks and confidence they need to survive and thrive as they navigate this increasingly competitive landscape.

Supporting Scotland’s diverse business ecosystem is our pleasure


“Running your own business is an exciting, sometimes, daunting experience and so having the right support at the right time is absolutely vital. With so much of our economic recovery dependent on the UK’s business owners, we are incredibly proud to be able to provide this support, whether you’re starting a new business or pivoting an existing one, free of charge, through Business Builder.

By putting the tools and guidance to grow at their fingertips, business owners can upskill at their own pace in a way that allows them to stay in control as they start, scale and succeed. We are with them every step of the way and look forward to supporting thousands of new businesses and entrepreneurs over the coming years.”
