About the research and data

Cambridge Ahead created this resource having drawn together accurate financial data covering the full range of Cambridge companies, both those based in Cambridge, and those trading in it.



Who is this resource for?

The source, methodology and granular nature of the data means that this resource will be of interest to a wide audience, from individual companies in Cambridge, to economics researchers, through to international organisations which might be doing a global search for new locations or acquisitions. The resource enables the data to be shown in sectoral, geographic, chart and other formats. The data for individual companies includes postcode, business sector, turnover, employment level, and directors.


Researchers from academia can request access to the raw data for research purposes. Background and supporting information, such as the methodology behind the Cambridge Cluster Insights resource data and summary tables are available below. As third-party research becomes available, it will be posted on this page and thus be publicly-available.
