About Us

Business for Scotland is a campaigning business network and think tank. We are a passionate about unlocking Scotland’s potential by promoting policies that will create sustainable business and economic growth. We are dedicated supporters of Scottish independence as a means to deliver our goals, setting Scotland on a more inclusive, greener, confident, more equal and economically successful path.


Founded by our Chief Executive Gordon MacIntyre-Kemp and six SME business owners in May 2011, Business for Scotland now has over 4,000 Associate and Stakeholder members.  Business for Scotland is an agenda setting, independent and political party neutral business network and business policy think tank.

Business for Scotland went from a standing start to being perhaps the best funded, supported, resourced and most effective associated group in the independence campaign.  Our still growing SME membership, our Board, staff and all local organisers are proud of the work they did and our contribution to the Yes surge from around the mid twenties to 45%.
