Company formation activity in Cumbria during 2022 shows promise for local entrepreneurs.

Cumbria experienced an uptick in company incorporations in 2022, as 2,418 companies were set up over the year. That compares favourably with the 2,286 companies established in 2021 bringing the total number of companies based in the county to 23,003 at the end of 2022.
