Business Gateway Arran & Cumbrae

Business Gateway Arran & Cumbrae operates from Brodick on the Isle of Arran. Our advisory team supports existing businesses helping them to grow and also works with individuals interested in starting a business. In addition to one-to-one support we deliver a range of business workshops at a number of locations including Ayr, Ardrossan and Kilmarnock.

Local businesses meeting specific growth criteria are assigned an adviser who will support the business through their business improvement. This may include advising the company on strategy and core activities, such as digital and traditional marketing, investment raising, planning or operational systems and process

For individuals thinking about starting a business, our advisor can also help with practical advice and guidance on a range of topics, including market research, business planning, financial forecasting, company formation and employing staff. Make an appointment if you would like to discuss your business idea by contacting 01770 808 231

Where appropriate, and where specific eligibility criteria are met, the Business Gateway team can help access funding and business support programmes delivered by the local authorities and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
