Improve your business

Businesses perform better when they innovate, compete, grow and export, which means more economic activity in our region. Since it’s Yorkshire Forward’s role to develop the economy of Yorkshire & Humber, it makes sense for us to support the business community. We do this in partnership with a wide variety of organisations, from local business networks to universities, big businesses and the EU.
