Wolverhampton created its own identity as a major centre for coal mining, steel production, and engineering throughout the Industrial Revolution. The city still retains its status as a major centre for engineering and manufacturing, but has gone through a period of transition.

Wolverhampton was named the "top entrepreneurial city in the UK" in December 2022.
This is evident with the city's special focus on creating growth for smaller businesses, and the investment being brought into Wolverhampton by global engineering firms, who have made the city their home. It’s also well-known for its wealth of arts, sports and cultural attractions, such as Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre and the Wolverhampton Art Gallery – with it even bidding to be named 2025 city of culture.
There's also large-scale investment moving throughout the city from a number of partnerships and global investors, with transformative innovation being in the form of:
• Taking on the initiative of different types of housebuilding and use of modern methods of construction
• Setting up education institutes to develop skills within the area and drive change
• Investing in new transport and travel infrastructure to create more dynamic neighbourhoods as well as to increase connectivity.
