Economic growth

We support economic development and growth in the city based on the four themes of Derby’s Economic Strategy:

  1. Raising productivity
  2. Boosting innovation
  3. Improving collaboration
  4. Spreading the benefits of growth for all.

How do we support economic growth?

Some of the things we do include: 

  • providing businesses with advice, financial support and property choices
  • raising the awareness of businesses to the range of support available to help them innovate
  • encouraging people to take their first steps into creating their own business
  • facilitating residents to access appropriate employment and training advice
  • supporting young people in their career choices and employability skills
  • helping people and businesses to maximise the benefits of the city's international links and promoting Derby to potential investors
  • working with our partners to deliver the Economic Growth Strategy, the City Centre Masterplan, the D2N2 Strategic Economic Plan and the Local Industry Strategy.
