New Business and Economy Support Project Aberdeenshire

28 Feb 2024

Aberdeenshire Council has launched a new project with a dedicated team to support locals in starting and growing their own businesses.

‘Enterprising Aberdeenshire’ is designed, developed and delivered by Aberdeenshire Council and is entirely funded through the UK Government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

It aims to help local people start their own businesses by engaging in the community and providing tailored services informed by their needs.

Spanning all six areas within Aberdeenshire – Banff & Buchan, Buchan, Formartine, Garioch, Kincardine and Mearns and Marr – the project will have a dedicated co-ordinator within each area.

The project will foster enterprise activity and business success by offering free advice and support, while connecting communities through diverse events and workshops. The team will work to connect aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners to the right people and services to help them reach their full potential.

Co-ordinators have already been out exploring their respective areas and getting to know the businesses, with very positive feedback already coming from communities and firms alike.
