  • 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

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.
