Firms form Team Lincolnshire to promote region to investors

Business leaders packed into the Doubletree in Lincoln earlier for the launch.

Business leaders from across Lincolnshire have joined together to help put the county on the map for international investors.

'Team Lincolnshire', which launched at an event in Lincoln earlier, brings together firms to promote the county to the government and businesses looking to spend money here.

Jill McCarthy, Head of the Growth Team at Lincolnshire County Council ‎Economic Development Services said: “Team Lincolnshire members are passionate about promoting Lincolnshire as an attractive place to live, work and invest and about encouraging new business to invest in the region."

“The concept is that all members become ambassadors for the region, fuelling our economy and securing our future. Team Lincolnshire represents the private and public sector working together across all sectors, and it is widely recognised that collaborating together to promote the area gives us a much stronger and passionate voice.”

It could help the area get big investment deals and push the government to solve issues with transport and infrastructure.
