Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership
The Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (OxLEP), is responsible for championing and developing the Oxfordshire economy. Working with businesses, academia and the public sector, OxLEP is driving economic development across the county. Our vision is to strengthen Oxfordshire’s position as a vibrant, sustainable, inclusive, world leading economy driven by innovation, enterprise and research excellence.
“Innovation is at the heart of our strategy to drive economic growth in Oxfordshire and Venturefest provides the perfect platform to nurture new and growing businesses and innovators, connecting them with investors, and support services. Small businesses are the foundation of our local and national economy and OxLEP’s business support team offers a variety of free advice, training, workshops and access to grants to help start-ups to flourish and established small companies to grow. Many of our SMEs here in Oxfordshire truly punch above their weight, trading on a national or even international scale, and are shining examples of the entrepreneurial flair, innovation and dedication that the county needs to continue to thrive.” Nigel Tipple, OxLEP Chief Executive
