Abstract

The main objective of Scottish Enterprise's Business Birth Rate Strategy is to increase the number and range of entrepreneurs in Scotland. The strategy was put in place after the publication of two reports: Scotland's Business Birth Rate (Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Business Insider 1993) and Improving the Business Birth Rate: A Strategy for Scotland (Scottish Enterprise 1993) which showed that Scotland lagged behind the rest of the UK, especially the south east of England, in both the number and quality of business start-ups. This paper is the first attempt to highlight some of the key features of the Programme and to assess the performance of the participating firms.
