If you are looking to set up or relocate your business, Hull’s business environment is the ideal place for companies to realise their business potential.
Hull topped the table where business experienced the highest level of improvement in sales growth in the country. Between 2009 and 2011, over a third of businesses in Hull (36 per cent) achieved revenue growth of over 10 per cent per year compared to the 2008 to 2010 period when only 21 per cent of businesses in the city were achieving this level of growth.
It was recently named the most enterprising location in Yorkshire and the Humber and came second nationally in the prestigious Enterprising Britain Awards 2009, before being named runner up in the Investing in Skills Category at the European Enterpise Awards 2010.
In the past five years £1.5 billion has been committed for new public sector development in Hull, underlining the city’s aspiration to completely renew its public infrastructure including schools, health centres and housing.
