Our Edinburgh Business Report 2017 is your comprehensive guide to the business environment in the city. It contains official statistics, information on the city’s latest developments and insight from key players in the Edinburgh business scene, including the University of Edinburgh careers service, that connects students from the world-renowned university with Edinburgh’s exciting, innovative businesses.
The report demonstrates why Edinburgh should be thought of as one of the top business locations in the UK. Supported by Scottish initiatives such as the Business Gateway and CivTech, as well as co-working spaces and a thriving startup community, Edinburgh offers all the support a new or small business could desire.
