Building on its historic reputation for pioneering breakthroughs in medicine and science, modern Scotland continues to demonstrate a flair for invention via the technology and life sciences sector.

As demonstrated in our new interactive guide, the Scottish tech scene is extremely diverse both geographically and in scope, with a wide variety of tech, life sciences and green energy entrepreneurs establishing exciting businesses across the country. As a result, the industry is increasingly seen as a key growth area for our economy. 

We’re proud to support this vibrant sector and, with experience of working with over 300 technology and life sciences companies across Scotland, we have the expertise to help you tackle the challenges and exploit the opportunities on offer.

Whether you’re a university spin-out aiming to commercialise your technology or a growing business with ambitions to target overseas markets, we have the solutions to meet your needs.

Our Head of Technology & Life Sciences, Shaun Millican, leads a team of specialists who will act as your trusted advisers on all the key issues affecting your business.

Our ecosystem engagement is critical for us. We partner and support a number of key events and activities, including Scottish Edge, Foras and Glasgow Tech Week. This means we have the connections to plug you into the right people, helping you with fundraising, board appointments or access to business mentors.

We regularly run networking events bringing together a range of tech startups, allowing like minded businesses to learn from each other. 

And if you have overseas ambitions, our team of International Tax experts can assist you and our membership of Moore Global offers access to a global network of sharp minds and organisations.
