A major initiative has been launched to showcase the Harborough District as a key location for businesses to invest, expand and prosper.

Harborough District Council launched its ‘Invest in Harborough District’ website and a specially-commissioned promotional video to showcase the district, raise its profile and encourage businesses to invest or relocate to the area.

It aims to build positive relationships with influential people and organisations in the business community to help attract investment to maintain a strong and vibrant economy. It also looks to connect businesses with the excellent support, training and funding opportunities that are available.

The Economic Development Team would like to thank Harborough Innovation Centre businesses who contributed to the successful launch of the initiative.
