Relocating and expanding your business into a new city can be complex.

The team at Invest Sheffield have vast experience in simply being there to help you with every step, providing tailored support and advice.

We do this through the relationships we have built up over many years working with great people within impactful organisations in the city. Put another way - there's not many folks we don't know. And they, like us, are more than happy to help - that's just how things happen in Sheffield.

To give you an example of the kinds of networks we can put you in touch with to provide meaningful connections with knowledgeable partners, below are some of the organisations we interact with on a weekly, if not daily basis.

Academia to commercial success

The University of Sheffield's Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre is a prime example of an incredibly attractive (and successful) investment opportunity, and is currently home to leading global businesses such as Siemens, Rolls-Royce, McLaren and Boeing. There they develop inventive solutions to overcome industry-led challenges. The partnership of the academic and research abilities the University can bring, alongside the facilitation and assistance we can provide from logistics to operations, means you essentially have a 'one team' approach all working with the same joint interests to drive economic growth and positively impact on regional supply chain industries.

An Olympic Legacy like no other

The Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is leading the way for regeneration with over 200 acres in the Lower Don Valley area of Sheffield. At the heart of the site is Sheffield Hallam University's Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, where our team have supported businesses in growth from accelerator programmes. The OLP welcomes inward investors with open arms, and we are frequently down there accompanying tours of the facilities and discussing opportunities to partner for research and development, whilst helping you find commercial office spaces. 

US Ed-Tech and Sports-Tech company Drumfit recently toured the facility and viewed first-hand the opportunities to develop product which resulted in a successful inward investment project into Sheffield.

The Sheffield Property Association

We frequently work with the S-PA on a number of ongoing projects within the city, and also at key events such as UKREiiF and Built Environment. Collaborating with this private sector brings fresh ideas and commercial knowledge of the property industry. In connection with the S-PA the Invest team launched investor prospectuses which were used to promote the city to international audiences and received great interest.

In addition, the Invest team will assist with any planning enquiries or facilities services. We will ensure your business has the means to operate successfully in the city.
