SHMINC tackles economic development differently to your normal consultancies. We're not just about strategy and policy, we're about building introductions and relationships with the businesses in your borough, for your borough.
With over 15 years experience in Local Government and Economic Development we understand the pressures on your team and what's expected.
We believe in brand first so If this sounds like a service you need then please reach out to us.
We make connections count
Start and grow your network
We specialise in identifying and creating meaning connections with the decision makers in organisations of all sizes.
Whether you have a full understanding of every businesses out there or are struggling to get a grip with who's who, we can present you with a full database of who your businesses are, the sectors they operate in and when your first introductory meeting with them is.
We build brands
Give your service an identity
We're strong believers in Economic Development delivered through a business facing brand. Businesses don't think to look at local authorities for help, you need to speak their language!
Don't worry about big agency bills though, we can scope and build the website, newsletters and handle all social media for you. Sorted!

Looking to grow the local economy?
