Business Gateway Fife has designed, delivered and managed a regeneration project to help those living in the most deprived areas of Fife to start up in business or work for themselves. The Be Your Own Boss project has been running successfully for over 4 years. In that time it has seen over 3000 clients, delivered 311 training and support events and helped 410 start up their own business. The Be Your Own boss Programme attracts Fairer Scotland funding and Fife Council funding.

External economic development consultants Biggar Consulting evaluated the BYOB Programme and noted “it was one of the best regeneration projects of its kind they had seen in over 20 years of consulting”.
