About D2N2

Established in 2010, D2N2 is one of the largest Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) in England, with a population of more than two million people and with an economic output of over £42.9billion GVA (Gross Value Added).

Our purpose is to support and encourage economic growth across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. 

Our vision is of a more prosperous, better connected, and increasingly resilient and competitive economy. To do that, we invest in projects across the region using the Local Growth Fund and European Union funding.

These projects range from programmes that support business development like the D2N2 Growth Hub, major infrastructure projects such as Nottingham College’s City Hub campus and the Our City, Our River series of flood defences around Derby, to investments in people through our Enterprise Adviser Network.

We are led and governed by a private sector-led Board; and supported by high profile and respected leaders from businesses, local authorities, skills and training providers, higher and further education providers, community and voluntary services organisations – working in partnership to secure a more prosperous, productive and sustainable future for the our area.

We work closely with all our local authorities to grow the area's economy:
