Invest Telford is a comprehensive online portal that provides information and resources for businesses looking to invest in Telford. The website, www.investtelford.co.uk , includes information on the local economy, key industries, available land and property, and support services.
In addition to the online portal, Invest Telford also offers tailored support and guidance to businesses looking to locate or expand in Telford. This includes access to local networks and contacts, business advice, and support with accessing funding and grants.
Councillor Lee Carter (Lab), Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for neighbourhood services, regeneration and the high street, said: "Invest Telford is a game-changer for our local economy. We know that Telford has a lot to offer businesses, from our excellent transport links and highly skilled workforce to our vibrant communities and stunning natural environment. With Invest Telford, we are making it easier for businesses to access the information and support they need to invest and grow in our area."
Invest Telford is part of the council's wider commitment to promoting sustainable economic growth and supporting businesses in the area and as part of the council's wider place plan.
