Home to entrepreneurs, scale-ups and growth sectors

Kent’s key sectors represent billions of pounds for the UK economy

The region has become a focal point for a number of diverse industries, with an exciting mix of global innovators and creative entrepreneurs driving change and economic prosperity across the county.

We have a powerful record of supporting the rapid growth of the creative & digital, food & drink, life sciences and manufacturing sectors in the county, and already have a strong national and regional reputation for tourism, viticulture, construction, and logistics & distribution.

Kent’s commercial offer comprises world-leading industrial production facilities and state-of-the-art office spaces in the natural beauty of the Garden of England, making us a prime choice for multi-nationals looking to expand and creative start-ups wanting to escape London’s high prices.

We are aligning our efforts to continually open up new investment opportunities for the next generation of entrepreneurs and investors from these sectors, and to support the growth of our other emerging industries.

We can help you find the right premises, talent, and funding specific to your sector, and help you put down strong foundations to grow as a landmark Kent business.
