What exactly do you mean by "Small Business Gateway"?

well, up here we have a body called scottish enterprise (don't scoff! :) ) and it's public interface is a collection of these small business gateways. they are supposed to be setup to help startups etc with various things. how they work, i don't yet know. they do however seem to move at the speed of every other government department (apart from ir)...

I have a small business that has been running for the past four years. During this time I have tried contacting all sorts of "gateways", but without any success. It seems that a lot of these organisations gave out money like sweets to start with, got burned, and now trust nobody.

that is beginning to look like the case here :( i can't get them to contact me at all. what a complete shower. but maybe no worse than any other government institution?
