South of Scotland Enterprise (SOSE) is the one-stop shop for businesses and enterprising communities throughout Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders. We’re here to help people and enterprises in the South to thrive, grow, and fulfil their best potential.

Every enterprise is different, and SOSE support is tailored to your stage and situation. Services can include training, advice, specialist expertise, and funding (grants and loans).

For inspiration, see the case studies  on businesses and communities we’ve helped around the region. Then get in touch for a chat with an adviser.
