Scotland has an ambition of building a world-leading entrepreneurial and innovative nation- a place where growth and innovation go hand in hand, with wider benefits for all.

The CAN DO Fest brings this ambition to life!

What is CAN DO Fest?

CAN DO Fest is a vibrant programme of events that takes place across Scotland every April and May to celebrate and supercharge entrepreneurship. This festival brings together leading enterprise and skills support organisations with bold citizens, entrepreneurs, investors and innovators to help them develop opportunities and ideas into sustained business growth and impact.

Festivals that spark change

CAN DO Fest and its autumn sister festival VentureFest Scotland represent focal points for collaboration and for showcasing to Scotland and the world what our ecosystem has to offer. Together our ambition is to celebrate and nurture a cycle of innovation and realisation for Scottish-based businesses of all shapes and sizes, while also encouraging the longer-term cultural changes that will help bring the CAN DO vision to life.
