What is Opportunity Harlow?

Launched in January 2022, Opportunity Harlow is a pilot programme created to make the Harlow economy more resilient.

The online members portal highlights new business opportunities as well as providing access to procurement related resources and events. Members use the events to network whilst learning from industry experts to help them win more business locally.

Run by the Haven Gateway Partnership, on behalf of Harlow Council and with links to organisations and sponsors of large-scale projects in the area, Opportunity Harlow can sign-post members to projects that are actively searching for local suppliers.

Opportunity Harlow is funded by UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund.

Why Harlow?

Over £2bn of investment will be made in Harlow over the next 10 years. To give local businesses a better chance of accessing these opportunities, Harlow District Council applied for funding from the UK Community Renewal Fund to set up Opportunity Harlow.

By bringing local businesses together we hope to build wealth within the Harlow community, and support local employment.

Learnings from Opportunity Harlow will inspire similar programmes elsewhere around the country.
