Royal Holloway joins Business South in the Year of the Champion

  • Date07 August 2017

Royal Holloway, University of London, has become the latest organisation to join Business South as one of its Champions.

Business South was established in 2007 to be the independent representative of businesses in the South of England, aiming to unite businesses, gain strength through collaboration, and to use that strength to make a difference to both individual organisations and to the wider economy.

Royal Holloway and Business South will be working together to promote the local area, show the importance of higher education and influence policy and investment decisions in the local community.

Investing in our future

Professor Paul Hogg, Vice-Principal and Dean, Science and Enterprise at Royal Holloway, University of London said“Business South’s vision for our region to be recognised nationally and internationally, as a preferred location of choice, able to attract and retain talent, driving increased opportunities for investment and business fits well with Royal Holloway’s strategic aim of engaging with and contributing to our region’s social and economic prosperity and well-being.

We have joined Business South to help the University connect with regional business and provide support for the local economy. Royal Holloway is always seeking to provide the graduates and research expertise that is needed to underpin regional prosperity and a greater interaction and dialogue with our local businesses will help us in this goal.”
