The Ortus team (whilst working at TBR) and Shared Intelligence were commissioned by South West Local Enterprise Partnership to provide economic analysis and consultancy advice to support the preparation of the South West Growth Strategy and Investment Prospectus for the 2014-2020 EU Programme.
This project created a range of analytical and insight outputs to provide a detailed evidence base and drive the identification of competitive advantage on which the Growth Plan was built. The overall outcome was a range of report and data outputs which were used to support high-level strategic decision-making. Our role was to deliver quantitative economic analysis focusing on economic growth and trends. This utilised both national statistics and government data sources as well as our own unique longitudinal business dataset to create a detailed appraisal of the South West LEP economy.
