Perfectly placed for business


Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is focused on helping to drive forward sustainable economic growth – with local business, education providers, the third sector and the public sector working together to achieve this.

A dynamic economy


Our aim is to create the right conditions to “accelerate business-led economic growth in Hertfordshire” and for the county to become a world-leading economy; one of the top three in the country outside London.

Find out how we are putting our Strategic Economic Plan into action thanks to our £221.5m Growth Deal from Government; this page also contains information on how to apply for funding for projects from 2017/2018. 

Growth Deal

Golden Research Triangle

Hertfordshire is perfectly placed for businesses to flourish. It sits at the heart of the Oxford-Cambridge-London ‘Golden Research Triangle’ and hosts several pockets of excellence in:

• Information Technology
• Bioscience, Life Sciences and Pharmaceuticals
•Creative Industries
• Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering

Excellent transport links

It benefits from close proximity to London, accessibility to national rail and road networks and international airports and has a higher than national average skilled labour force.

Working hard to support growth

As part of our Growth Deal with Government we are transforming the economy through the development and delivery of ambitious programmes which will ensure that companies have the funding, support, skills and infrastructure needed to thrive and ensure that Hertfordshire remains a great place to live, work and do business.
