Are you looking for someone to support your potential investment with local knowledge and experience of navigating the landscape? Perhaps you are looking for an initial discussion or something more specific?
Meet Dean. Dean works with investors on preparing briefs and presentations (providing all the key stats you’ll need at your fingertips). He’s an expert on Sheffield’s commercial property market & development pipeline. Better still, he’s here to provide impartial advice to help you find the most suitable office or premises for your business (he’ll even manage the logistics of a site visit or property tour).
Dean will support you in engaging with Sheffield’s local and national supply chain partners and introduce you to local business networks (like the Sheffield Property Association, Sheffield Chamber or Sheffield Digital). He’s committed to offering excellent support for innovation and research working in partnership with both of our world leading Universities.
Dean also has a great track record when it comes to identifying and accessing grants, loans, or equity finance to grow your business. He’s a dab hand at helping you develop the business case and submit the application.
With more than 15 years’ experience in both private and public sector Dean will help investors navigate the relevant local authority statutory services provided by the council, including planning, business rates, environmental permits etc.
And Dean will stick around. He can help you make noise about your investment, arrange open days and red tape mayoral events and introduce you to other members of the team who look after the top businesses in the city and help with recruitment, retention and training of staff.
