Our Mission

Looking forward, we will continue to lever existing connections with North America/ Canada to create opportunities for enterprises, entrepreneurs & educational institutions. Our goal is to strengthen our resource base & work in collaboration with key stakeholders to ensure that the Midlands is more attractive to companies, particularly those with a technology focus, who will provide employment & economic development here. In particular, we will remain focused on trying to increase STEM literacy amongst the Midlands population. We value international connections & the vital role they play in the delivery of its work, implementing part of the Department of Foreign Affairs’ role in fostering international links to further the Government’s objectives.

Our Vision

The vision that underpins our work is of a future-thinking Midlands, which is at the cutting edge of technology, where the link between education and economic development is clearly heard and acted upon. We seek to do what is in the best long-term interest of Midlands’ people and businesses. Our success to date has been based on the pursuit of corporate and education development opportunities and measuring the resulting economic impact in this region. If we work together, we can accomplish great things as we continue to spread our story internationally.
