Opportunity Peterborough was founded in 2005 as an urban regeneration company. Five years later our remit evolved to lead the city’s economic development. We’re a private not-for-profit business, wholly owned by Peterborough City Council.
As an economic development company, Opportunity Peterborough’s core responsibilities include marketing Peterborough to businesses to attract inward investment, engaging with local companies to support growth and development, and leading the city’s skills agenda to ensure our current and future talent pool is trained and work-ready. We also deliver a range of projects to boost the local economy and support Peterborough’s aspiration to create the UK’s environment capital.
We know our local businesses are the lifeblood of our city’s economy, that’s why we offer support to help them set up and grow. From hosting the Peterborough Bondholder Network to running sector forums and events, sharing economic intelligence, and business & funding opportunities, we’re here to help Peterborough businesses prosper.
