Northamptonshire County Council Wins Enterprise Award

27 September 2012

Northamptonshire has been named the most enterprising place in Britain by the government department responsible for supporting economic growth in the country.

The blue-riband prize was given to Northamptonshire County Council for its innovative approach to boosting prosperity in the county particularly its work in safeguarding the British Grand Prix at Silverstone and success in supporting local businesses through initiatives such as the INV-ENT scheme.

The authority also picked up an award for encouraging export through its work with Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership and the establishment of a European investment team based in Brussels.

The Enterprising Britain competition was run by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and was looking for the place that could best demonstrate a positive impact of enterprise on the community over the past two years.

The announcement was made by Business and Enterprise Minister Michael Fallon during the MADE entrepreneurial festival in Sheffield on Thursday (September 20).

Councillor Jim Harker, Leader of Northamptonshire County Council said: “To be named the most enterprising place in Britain is a wonderful achievement for Northamptonshire and recognises our innovative and long term approach to delivering economic prosperity across Northamptonshire".
