A two-week campaign to show businesses how they can grow and increase productivity through investment is launched today (September 10) by Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC).
Invest to Grow aims to inspire businesses to invest in research and development (R&D), innovation, technology and machinery and at the same time boost productivity.
For the next two weeks the GBCC will highlight a wide range of content exploring what local businesses are investing in and why. It will also highlight what support is available and the barriers to investment.
Almost 20 companies have provided case studies, opinion pieces or taken part in podcasts or videos as part of the campaign.
Part one focuses on investment in R&D and innovation and is sponsored by the University of Birmingham. It will feature content from The NEC Group, Curium Solutions, MCS Corporate, Versierve, Cocoonfxmedia, RSM and more exploring their experiences of fostering innovation and investing in R&D.
Part two, sponsored by MCS Corporate, focuses on investment in technology and machinery.
Readers are encouraged to join the conversation on social media using #I2G18.
