Business Gateway is a free, impartial and professional business advisory service delivered across Scotland on behalf of local authorities.
In Renfrewshire, Business Gateway services are delivered by Renfrewshire Council by a team based at the InCube Business Base. The support on offer is an integral part of the council’s support to local businesses.
Business Gateway supports individuals looking to set up a new business whether you’re looking to be a sole trader or have aspirations and opportunities to grow to a significant size in terms of turnover and employment.
If you’re already trading and looking for support to develop and grow your business further, then Business Gateway can help with this too.
Anyone thinking about starting a business can make an appointment with an advisor, who can deliver a wealth of information on company structure, market research, financial and business planning and more.
Businesses can also book a free appointment with an adviser to talk through their business growth aspirations and prioritise areas for development.
They can then go on to access in-depth advice on a range of topics such as marketing, social media and e-commerce.
Business Gateway also design and deliver a free programme of workshops and seminars covering a range of business topics and which can be accessed by all new and existing businesses.

The Business Gateway team will also help signpost clients towards financial support, such as that available through Invest in Renfrewshire.
