As a Digital Agency in Northamptonshire, we love to keep track of everything that’s going on in Northampton’s business world.
We’re always happy to hear good news, and we’ve certainly heard some today: research from UHY Hacker Young and the Northamptonshire Growth Hub has found that Northampton has more new businesses in the past year than anywhere else in the country.
In the UK, the average number of new businesses per 10,000 population is 12. Northampton has exceeded this exponentially, with 43 new businesses per 10,000. This number even beats London, making Northampton the number one town in the UK for new business creation!
UHY Hacker Young believe that Northampton’s growing Automotive industry, combined with our central location and the recent economic boost from local authorities, is why Northampton is doing so well.
Northampton Cabinet member for Regeneration, Enterprise and Planning, Cllr Tim Hadland said: “This new report is yet more evidence that Northampton is a great place for people to come to start or grow a business.” We couldn’t agree more!
Zinc has worked with the Northamptonshire LEP, SEMLEP and Growth Hubs on over 50 projects, including game development for their Home of Motorsport campaign and launching the Love Northampton campaign, promoting Northamptonshire as a good place to live and work. We love everything they do to help keep Northamptonshire a thriving business community. We’re very happy to see that Northamptonshire is fast becoming a hub for new business, and hope to be a part of these businesses journey to success!
