Unlocking Investment for Growth

EMB managed the Unlocking Investment for Growth programme on behalf of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership. Funded by Round 3 of the Government’s Regional Growth Fund, the programme was further expanded by funding from the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Catalysing Growth project.

Unlocking Investment for Growth has unlocked £23m of direct investment into businesses based across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire and has supported the creation of 300 new jobs and safeguarded a further 350 jobs.

The programme worked with companies that had significant capital investment projects and which were unable to raise all the finance through conventional routes. Many of these are in the D2N2 LEP's six key sectors: Bio-science, Food & Drink, Construction, Transport Equipment Manufacture, Low Carbon and the Visitor Economy.
