making sense of place economics

Private sector business & enterprise

Understanding business risks and growth drivers

Egg and dice

At GENECON we work extensively on measures to stimulate business growth and private sector investment in local economies. Small & Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) are the life-blood of place economies, driving jobs and wealth creation and stimulating innovation through new ideas, products and services.

In a new age of austerity new business growth will require unprecedented experimentation and innovation.

The Government has placed a dynamic, private sector enterprise culture at the heart of its local growth strategy.

GENECON has advised on a range of initiatives to support private sector enterprise growth, including: business incubation and hatchery facilities and associated business support programmes; business and innovation schemes, including the North West Manufacturing Advisory Service and South East Innovation Advisory Service; and business support and enterprise development schemes, providing recommendations for future policy intervention.
