Traditionally, Cornwall has been known as a quaint holiday destination. But its public image of sea shells, sandcastles, and second homes belies the tech industry revolution bubbling under its surface.

Invest in Cornwall is Cornwall Council’s dedicated inward investment function,  delivered on behalf of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (CIoS LEP), the project is committed to managing inward investment into the region, as well as marketing Cornwall as a viable place for businesses to locate to. The project sets out to attract next generation, technology-led businesses into the region, enabling them to take advantage of the unrivalled superfast broadband infrastructure, skilled talent and enviable way of life – as well as joining a growing and collaborative tech cluster.

fDi Intelligence, a service of the Financial Times, is the leading Centre of Excellence for fDi globally. Invest in Cornwall, on behalf of the Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly LEP, have been announced as the runners-up in the LEP ‘cost effectiveness’ category – a great endorsement for a team of nine passionate individuals working with businesses from across the globe to successfully attract and secure investment for Cornwall and support the growth of the region’s economy.

The team will be joining the award ceremony at MIPIM, 12th-16th March . If you’d like to find out more about Cornwall’s inward investment service, or explore opportunities within the region, get in touch with the team today.
