Economic and international development

Our approach

We help you attract businesses and investors to your location to drive economic growth, prosperity and international development.

We’re business savvy – we’ve launched successful businesses of our own to capitalise on our firm’s technology and innovation expertise. So you’ll get expert support grounded in real-life experience.


What we can do for you

We'll work with you to capitalise on emerging trends and new opportunities for economic development. And our experience in international development has taken us across the world and across the development lifecycle - from increasing trade in Lebanon to helping the UN introduce biometric systems for refugees.

We can help you:

  • Boost your competitiveness. We identify what your location’s strengths are and what type of businesses you are most likely to attract, and share best-practice advice to make your location more attractive to businesses and investors.
  • Grow your local businesses, expand and internationalise. We design support programmes to move businesses along the growth continuum, from start-up phase to multinational. We help local businesses access international supply chains, and deliver growth programmes to ensure results are achieved.
  • Find new ways to meet your goals. We can redevelop your organisation and your partner networks to be more efficient and productive, and help you capitalise on new delivery mechanisms, such as digital, to achieve more with less.
  • Innovation, technology and digital. We can bring our expertise from multiple sectors and geographies to help you exploit agile and adaptive techniques, introduce new technologies and create innovative business models.
  • Performance improvement. We can help you simplify what you do, be smarter with digital, transform your procurement practices or unleash the full benefits of public-private partnerships. We’re working across a wide range of public and third sector organisations to help improve results within tight fiscal constraints.
