Invest in Manchester’s new site spotlights strengths to attract international investment

Categories: Latest News

Once at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution, Manchester now holds the leading edge when it comes to competitive growth in the UK. It has an economy worth over £70 billion, but this city region also boasts excellent global connectivity and rich pools of talent and now — with the launch of Invest in Manchester ( — it can effectively showcase these strengths to attract investment from around the world. 

The home of the first stored-program computer, IVF, atomic theory, and graphene technology, Manchester has long been at the helm of innovation. Today, from advanced manufacturing through to life sciences and healthcare — not to mention its position as a key hub for the creative and financial, professional and business services industries — Manchester is the place where multiple sectors flourish. This array of thriving industries is precisely why Manchester presents unparalleled opportunity for international investors. 

But the prosperity of these sectors tells only half the story, because Manchester offers up so much more than technological innovation. Home to a population of just over seven million and with a major research university located within an hour’s travel time of the city centre, potential investors will note there’s no shortage of raw talent from which to draw. When it comes to infrastructure, Manchester’s extensive rail, road and transport network — not to mention its high-speed fibre broadband — offers unrivaled connectivity. Add to this a vibrant and liveable cityscape and the attraction of Manchester is hard to beat.

From the cradle of the Industrial Revolution to the UK’s top tech city, Manchester continues to power forward from strength to strength. With its new website, Manchester can comprehensively spotlight all the city has to offer the international investor.
