Leeds Business Startups
It developed as a market town in the Middle Ages, became the centre of the textile industry in the 18th century and now Leeds is one of the UK's largest cities. Today its diverse economy is fed by the service sector as much as manufacturing, with a strong bias towards the legal, financial and banking sectors. But, our new company formation statistics* show that new businesses across all sectors are thriving too. New business startups in Leeds are also on the way up, as the data indicates upward trends.
