Invest Surrey

Customized Microsite to Inspire Economic Development
Upanup created a digital platform for the City of Surrey to facilitate connection between its business community and international investors.

As one of Canada's fastest-growing cities, Surrey is also home to an economy that is rapidly expanding and diversifying. A hub for global connection and innovation, Surrey's geographical location and varied business landscape has made it an attractive centre for foreign investment. 

Surrey Investment
The Challenge

Despite continued growth, the City of Surrey recognized that the absence of a platform for engaging investors might be causing its developing business sector to miss out on opportunities for long-term success and expansion. The City required a website that established it as a world-class competitor for international talent and investment, and made it easier for potential investors to connect with Surrey's business community.

How We Helped

Our team worked with the City to determine key audiences, and then developed a framework and content strategy that would make it simple for those users to navigate the new website. The design approach for this project focused on building connection and engagement through a clean, modern interface, while incorporating functionality that sets the site apart from other investment sites.
