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.

Hertfordshire is perfectly placed for businesses to flourish. It sits at the heart of the Oxford-Cambridge-London ‘Golden Research Triangle’ and hosts several globally significant clusters in:
• Bioscience, life sciences and pharmaceuticals 
• Creative Industries 
• Advanced Manufacturing 

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

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 ensure Hertfordshire is a perfect place to live, work and do business.
