City of talent and innovation

Invest in Belfast

Belfast confounds expectations.

Shaped by challenge and change, it’s a capital city reinvented for the 21st century.

It’s brimming with a fresh energy, sparking innovation and driving things forward. Our people are resilient, hard-working and adaptable – they’re good at solving problems, and creative thinking is the norm.

This is a ‘right-size’ city: big enough for a buzzing city vibe; small enough to feel you belong. It’s welcoming, easy to network, make friends, bring up kids and put down roots. There’s a good life to be had here: music, food, culture, craic - and you’re never far from the hills and the water. 

Perfectly positioned, with both Dublin and London within easy reach, we’re proud of our investment record, our tech strength and our world-class universities. And we’re excited about our inclusive, resilient low-carbon future. This is a city that wants to grow and has the space to do it. In the next decade a game-changing £1bn from the city region deal – and investment in the waterfront, city-centre living, active travel and a green port – will make this a new kind of capital city.
