D2N2, in collaboration with partners, has launched the Investor Development Service, aimed at encouraging foreign-owned businesses to increase their footprint within the region and access additional support.

Businesses already based in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire with a minimum of 10% foreign ownership are eligible  and part of the new service will include key account management which can provide expertise on a variety of subjects including:

  • Help with finding suitable property or sites
  • Co-ordinating relevant planning advice and regulatory processes with local Councils
  • Accessing sector specialists and academic partners to support R&D and innovation
  • Supporting skills and training needs
  • Brokering access to finance and legal advice
  • Providing relevant market intelligence to support decision making
  • Creating a channel to local and national Government

The support offered will also be bespoke, giving an individual approach to each business.

To deliver the service, D2N2 is working with OCO Global, a leading boutique consultancy that specialises in supporting Foreign Companies in international markets.

Through the D2N2 Investor Development Service, OCO Global will be available to assess a business’s investment needs and provide a business health-check as well as providing a conduit to localised Government Support.
