Elevator awarded £7m Business Gateway contract to support North East businesses over the next five years

Elevator – Scotland’s leading social enterprise for work on entrepreneurship, enterprise and employability – will continue to deliver the Business Gateway service for Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City councils from April.

Elevator, based at Aberdeen Energy Park, has been delivering economic development activities to the local business community on behalf of the local councils for 30 years.

The award of the contract comes at a time of great investment across the region and is seen as playing an important part in the delivery of the Regional Economic Strategy.

The new contract shows the strength of both councils’ commitment to supporting local business, and the investment is expected to bring employment and improvement benefits for the local economy. The region already has a strong start-up culture and it is important to build on this so that new businesses are able to invest in the area and sell their goods and services across the globe.
