|Abstract:||First paragraph: Scotland's business base, like those of many other European countries, is dominated by micro businesses. Only a small proportion of Scotland's businesses employ more than ten employees and there are few indigenously-owned, larger-scale companies. Indeed, Scotland, in common with the rest of the UK economy, has struggled to grow small businesses into larger businesses of "scale" that can be major contributors to economic growth through their role as large scale employers, large scale exporters, generators of supply chains for other local companies and incubators for new spin-offs (CBI, 2011).|
