The Objective One Business Task Force's vision was to 'Make Cornwall the place to do business in the 21st century' and its aim was to 'establish Cornwall as a model for sustainable prosperity by creating foundations that support innovation and best practice'.

The projects in the Business Support investment cluster provided support, advice and investment for mainly, but not exclusively, small and medium sized businesses.

This cluster also includes a number of funds that provided tailored services to individual small and medium businesses to assist them with development and growth.
