Innovation in Place
Through innovation, we can create a fairer society across geographies and groups, and in particular places and spaces. Where innovation happens matters – it can change quality of life. By taking development to targeted regions, and understanding their unique challenges and potential, we can enable socio-economic flourishing.
We work in isolated rural communities and areas of poverty, to develop entrepreneurial ecosystems; with the NHS, UK and international governments, Local Enterprise Partnerships, present and future leaders; and drive change in connectivity infrastructures, support natural disaster response, and promote compassionate leadership.
Over almost 25 years, we have worked with SMEs in the North West of England and beyond, building a strong reputation for improving productivity and leadership, and develop new sustainable practices and skills.
