About Coast to Capital LLP
Formed in 2011 as one of the UK’s new Local Enterprise Partnerships, Coast to Capital LLP is focused on delivering growth for one of Britain’s most economically important areas which includes the airport economy surrounding London Gatwick. We represent a population of 1.9 million people, more than 85,000 businesses supporting more than 776,000 jobs and 141,000 self employed individuals.
Our focus is on those areas where we can stimulate growth and add the most value, working with the private and public sectors. However, our ambitions are global. Through our strong pursuit of trade opportunities, we want to retain our best talent and attract more of the world’s best minds to come here. Coast to Capital is led by the business community and supported by our region’s local authorities, businesses and academic institutions. In partnership, we are collaborating to secure a more prosperous and sustainable future for all.
We take a strategic lead in ensuring that the infrastructure and conditions for economic growth are in place across our diverse region, which includes both urban and rural areas. This includes the facilitation of the Government’s Growing Places Fund and the European Structural and Investment Fund.
Coast to Capital is not a delivery organisation and we do not take on the direct delivery of business support services. However, in order to create favourable conditions for growth, we do identify priorities and strategies for improving local transport, housing and skills development.
