Small Business 2020: inspiring growth, innovation and ambition

February 2nd 2016 | London

HS2

HS2 is a dedicated high-speed railway that will connect London to Birmingham from 2026 and then to Manchester and Leeds from 2033. It presents a huge opportunity for the whole of British business and will help rebalance the UK economy. We want to help British companies become more creative, more dynamic and better equipped to take advantage of the opportunities created by HS2.

HS2 will generate thousands of contract opportunities and jobs, including the next generation of this country’s engineers. We need small businesses’ innovation, flexibility and ability to deliver to maximise the value of HS2 to local economies and allow the UK to compete internationally in state-of-the-art engineering for years to come.
