The app presents data relevant to the process of setting-up business in a new location or relocating, with each region organised in to three sections: Population, Employment and Workforce. Here the user can review an area's performance and compare them against other LEPs.

IdeaLocation was conceived to inform business decision leaders on investigating potential areas for their business. The recently updated information enables users to compare and analyse the strengths of each region, and how appropriate the location is to their business needs.

IdeaLocation provides the first step in guiding you to locations that are right for your long term business goals and aspirations.

Founder Adam Breeze has worked with hundreds of inward investment agencies around the world and has advised more than 100 inward investors such as BMW, Capital One, Marks & Spencer, Airbus and Pfizer.
