Opportunity Peterborough was founded in 2005 as an urban regeneration company. Five years later our remit evolved to lead the city’s economic development, and now we’re supporting economic development and inward investment activity across our region. 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 and the wider region to businesses to attract inward investment, engaging with local companies to support their growth and development, and, ultimately ensuring businesses have the resources, services and connections they need locally to thrive.
To that end, we’re leading the skills agenda across the north of Cambridgeshire and into Lincolnshire, bringing educators and businesses together so curriculum addresses skills gaps and helps companies develop their talent pipeline. As one of the fastest growing areas of the UK, we’re also a world-class leader in sustainable ways of working so our growth doesn’t come at the expense of our planet. Our circular economy and smart city programmes are powering cross-sector innovation to streamline processes, divert waste from landfill, and maximise resource lifespan.
Local businesses are the lifeblood of our city’s economy, that’s why we offer support to help them set up and grow.
