Surrey Connects is an independent, business led economic development company working in partnership to stimulate enterprise growth across Surrey. We are champions of Smart Economic Growth and our aim is to increase the value of the economy and promote Surrey as a world-class economy. Together we share a vision of Surrey as a county where knowledge, creativity and innovation drive economic growth to improve prosperity and quality of life for all.
There is a need to focus on knowledge, creativity and innovation, and increasing exports is a key action of Surrey Connects to help achieve this. Export Surrey is a new service which Surrey Connects, in conjunction with Surrey Chambers of Commerce, formally launched in the autumn 2013. It promotes the opportunities and business benefits that seeking new markets overseas can bring.
Surrey is a sought-after location offering an enviable lifestyle. It is less than 20 miles from central London and Heathrow and Gatwick.
Help us to drive the Smart Economic Growth Agenda. We want to hear your views, opinions and experiences in a number of areas.
We have a strong local economy - the largest contributor to the national economy outside London, but success brings challenges.
WISE women wanted to boost digital business skills
One hundred Surrey women are being offered the chance to become digital entrepreneurs so they can set up new businesses or transform existing ones.
At the heart of Smart Economic Growth is the need to harness technology and innovate new ways of working to increase productivity. Working with Digital Business Britain we have created Digital Business Surrey.
Invest in Surrey is a new service to enable Surrey to respond to business investment enquiries, for those firms looking to relocate into the county from either other parts of the UK or Foreign Direct Investments
