We welcome new ideas, in fact we encourage it, as we know we can provide you with the cutting edge skills, tools, ecosystem and infrastructure to bring them to life.
The city is the third largest in the UK, one of the fastest growing and one of the greenest too.
Our ambitions are bold – we want Leeds to become the best city in the UK. We are distinctive, sustainable, progressive, fun and creative for all – the perfect location to invest in the UK.
But most of all, we want people to experience our home as a compassionate, caring and safe place to live, work and thrive.
We are the UK’s first city for health innovation. We’re striving to become a city where the poorest improve their health the fastest, and we’re proud of our unique health ecosystem.
Culture around every corner
We are city that’s full of energy, with some of the best arts and culture in the country, along with a strong sporting legacy and a reputation for organising and hosting exceptional events.
