I get a real kick out of seeing high impact successes being created and realised. Working together with an impressive team of colleagues, we have been on a major journey to set up the Enterprise Hub.

Now, with 52 new companies attracting over £36 million of investment and creating circa 200 new high grade jobs, we have seen some remarkable achievements in just a few short years.
