Scottish Growth Scheme

Last updated: 3 May 2018

The Scottish Growth Scheme is a £500 million package of financial support for Scottish businesses. It's backed by the Scottish Government and aims to help businesses grow.

This funding will be provided through a series of initiatives which businesses can access for investment.

The first to open is the Scottish-European Growth Co-investment Programme.

More initiatives are expected to open soon.

The Scottish-European Growth Co-investment Programme supports businesses looking to raise £2 million or more in equity finance (selling shares) to grow their business.

It's delivered by Scottish Enterprise through the Scottish Investment Bank, in partnership with the European Investment Fund.

The SME Holding Fund helps new businesses find equity finance (selling shares) of up to £2 million. This money is then used to help these businesses grow.

The fund is delivered by Scottish Enterprise through the Scottish Investment Bank, and private sector partners.
