Working in partnership

We work with a range of organisations.

By developing networks and partnerships with like-minded organisations across Northern Ireland and internationally, we can use resources more efficiently and provide more expert business services.

We work with others to agree strategies and take forward action plans that will have a positive impact on Northern Ireland’s economic development.

These stakeholders include local councils, government departments, economic development organisations, the further and higher education sectors, sector specific and business development organisations, and international connections.

We aim to:

  • Help build the infrastructure required for successful research and development
  • Encourage entrepreneurship
  • Develop sectoral and cross-sectoral support mechanisms
  • Help develop skills

Northern Ireland’s central government departments have adopted our free information website,, as the online gateway for business support, information and advice. We will continue to work with them and other stakeholders to develop this resource, broaden its reach and enable many processes to be delivered online.
