Milton Keynes. The city designed to be a utopia for British citizens that would change the way urban areas looked and functioned; the place to be for business, housing and leisure. The city that is home to All Things Business MK.
Now boasting the third highest number of businesses per head, the third highest GVA per worker and one of the highest start-up rates of all British cities, Milton Keynes has recently been ranked in Management Today’s top 10 cities for business in the UK in 2019, alongside cities such as Manchester and Birmingham.
Let’s take a look at a few of the reasons why Milton Keynes is a great place to do business:
There are more than 18 million people within an hour away from Milton Keynes, making it an exceptional place for potential development with new business opportunities and the chance to employ highly skilled employees who may not live in the city but would be willing to commute.
Milton Keynes’ population has been one of the fastest growing of all cities in Britain. The opportunity to recruit skilled employees is strengthened by university schemes & the local college, and not to mention the School of Management at Cranfield University only a couple of miles down the road.
As we mentioned earlier, Milton Keynes was literally designed for business and leisure, and the opportunities are only going to keep growing. By 2026, The Milton Keynes Core Strategy aims to deliver a minimum of 28,000 new homes and 40,000 new jobs.
We’re proud to be in Milton Keynes. Are you?
In addition to being one of the top 10 cities for business, we all know that Milton Keynes is also the perfect location for leisure activities.
