Fife Business Directory relaunched to encourage collaboration
FIFE Council Economic Development has updated and relaunched its business directory aimed at encouraging local businesses to work together to support Fife’s economy.
The online platform, accessible through InvestFife, is free for businesses, whether as a way to showcase their goods, products and services for supply chain opportunities, or to keep up to date with business news and relevant industry news and events.
Pamela Stevenson, Service Manager, Economic Development, Business & Employability at Fife Council, commented:
“We launched this Business Directory following feedback from local businesses via our Business Barometers. Businesses have called for more digital investment as well as loyalty programs to encourage the use of local goods and products. Through our online business directory we will be able to support local businesses, encourage collaboration, raise the profile of Fife based businesses and ultimately benefit the local economy.
“Fife has several key business areas, each with their own areas of expertise. We want to encourage our local businesses, organizations and community groups to do business here in Fife by working together, and so our business directory will hopefully become the ‘go to’ resource when looking for suppliers, as well as a source of information, insight and news.
“By trying to shorten the supply chain and retain contracts here in Fife, we are working to strengthen the local economy, retain and attract highly skilled workers and protect Fife as a the place to do business.
The business directory is a free tool to improve the visibility of businesses online. Businesses will be able to upload a profile, including contact details and information about its business offering, which will be easily searchable.
InvestFife will also provide regular industry and economic updates to Directory members, regional news, business development opportunities and access to funding opportunities.
