If you’re planning a growth project, our ‘AMBITION to Grow’ programme can help. Growing a business can often present challenges that may seem overwhelming. However, we can support you, not just with possible funding, but by offering expert advice through our Business Gateway Advisors and connecting you with the right people and partner organisations to help take your business to the next level.

As well as supporting your business ambition, we also have our own ambition: to help businesses in South Ayrshire create less carbon, become more digitally competitive and increase their productivity.

In addition to our existing programme AMBITION to Grow, we have designed specific support around these three themes:


With rising energy bills and transport costs, plus the current focus on achieving net zero, everyone needs to commit to reducing their carbon footprint wherever possible. We’ve developed “Green AMBITION” to help businesses transition to low carbon technologies, saving on costs as well as carbon.


Is your business digitally competitive and productive? Your digital presence is critical to your business success. “Digital AMBITION” can provide you with the tools and techniques you need to maximise your digital opportunities to compete, grow and project your brand.

Productivity AMBITION

Could your business be doing things smarter, quicker and at lower costs? “Productivity AMBITION” can help you analyse your current processes, identify opportunities for improvement and introduce measures that can increase your efficiency, cut your costs and provide data to help you move your business to a new level of competitiveness.

How to start growing

All you need to do is tell us a bit about your business. We’ll then work with you to create a tailored package of support from ourselves and our partners. We’ll also provide ongoing support for you as your business grows, offering advice and guidance whenever you need it.
