I would like to echo the views of Professor Jonathan Levie who has called for a “Team Scotland” strategy to foster further entrepreneurship in Scotland (your report, 7 June). As Professor Levie’s research has revealed, entrepreneurial activity in Scotland is on the rise and is now matching the levels of our successful Scandinavian neighbours.
The Scottish business community has responded well to global uncertainty by working more closely together in partnership to drive sustainable economic growth.
By co-operating and sharing insight, we have created a positive climate for start-ups and the business leaders of tomorrow to flourish.
There is now a real opportunity for this entrepreneurial spark to translate into international growth which should be celebrated by everyone in Scotland.
