Our ambition is to achieve:
• an increase in entrepreneurship and innovation activity from individuals and businesses in Scotland resulting in more businesses being formed and new products and services from existing businesses;
• more people from all walks of life with the ambition and skills to create, lead and grow successful businesses;
• an education system with entrepreneurship and innovation at its core, seizing the opportunities presented by Curriculum for Excellence, college reform and the world-leading strength of our universities;
• more of our knowledge and intellectual capital being commercialised and greatly increased collaboration between business and the academic sector; and
• a greater focus on, and share of, global markets as our business leaders grow in confidence and expand their horizons internationally.
