We are setting the agenda surrounding the development of regional devolution and power sharing, which Downtown believes will help with the much needed rebalancing of the UK economy. We will work to build a powerful network of highly ambitious entrepreneurial and high growth companies, which will positively contribute to the Northern Powerhouse and West Midlands Engine.

Our influence is built on the diverse range and high calibre of our membership across the north of England and the Midlands, and our speed-dial relationships with key policy makers at regional and national level.

Our goal is to provide an unparalleled service to our members, which will give them the opportunity to meet new clients, raise their profile, and build better businesses. It’s a simple logic but simplicity works.
