"SBN has open so many doors in Angels’ Shares export journey.
Long lasting connections and good business advice and sense.
The Scottish diaspora is a powerful thing and Scots like helping each other you just have to reach out and ask! "
"I initially came across SBN from posts popping up on my LinkedIn feed. I reached out & spoke to Cath. She explained how SBN works, and how they help introduce people to fellow Scots around the world. For me, as a Scottish woman working with expats in the US, joining SBN was a no-brainer for me and I’ve already made some great connections and helped others, too. They're a Great group and very happy to be a part of the Scottish Business Network.

"Being part of the Scottish Business Network has already had such an impact on me as an entrepreneur and on my organisation. Our time in NYC for Tartan Week has brought me many connections and new directions where to take my business."
"My first experience, after joining SBN, was going to a networking event in London. I didn’t know anyone and I was admittedly a little apprehensive but immediately, I felt welcomed and chatted to everyone as if I had known them for years. This experience was consistent back in Glasgow and even out in New York. SBN has built a community of ambitious, brilliant and friendly individuals who are keen to support each other because of our shared heritage."
Our priority is to enable as many Scottish businesses as possible to feel able to fully engage in pledging to be Net Zero.
We want to build on the position the country already has as the host of COP26 in November 2021
