Elevator is a social enterprise dedicated to supporting the entrepreneurs, business leaders and employees of today and tomorrow. We do this by providing expert business advice, quality office space, and encouraging entrepreneurship and enterprising behaviour through a range of projects and events across Scotland. At our headquarters in Bridge of Don Aberdeen, Elevator has created the UK's first Centre for Entrepreneurship, combining the delivery of Business Gateway with an open-access public facility, digital demonstration centre and business accelerator. Elevator assists over 2,000 businesses across Grampian and Tayside to start and grow through advisory support, workshops, seminars and bespoke events.
Elevator Business Centres deliver office space made easy. We have 18 locations spread over Scotland spanning from Perth to Banff, providing a home for businesses of all sizes, and covering a wide range of sectors. Our Business Centres offer a professional environment with modern meeting room facilities in urban and rural locations, with flexible leasing terms.
Elevator celebrates the achievements of businesspeople making a difference both locally and nationally through the annual Elevator Awards (previously the Grampian Awards for Business Excellence).
Elevator's Accelerator Programmes support ambitious entrepreneurs with aspirations for scale and growth, teaching entrepreneurial disciplines and best practice for business growth. The Programmes are hosted in a world-class Centre for Entrepreneurship at Bridge of Don and participants ('Founders') experience complete immersion in entrepreneurial activity.
Our Vision is for Scotland to be a place where all young people are given the opportunity to have a rewarding future in work and life - no matter where they start their journey.
Our Mission is to inspire and equip young people, irrespective of their background, to learn, develop and reach their full potential through enterprise education.
In everything that we do, we will work with the following values: Integrity, Enthusiasm, Creativity & Collaboration.
