We’ve assembled a team of practicing business professionals from across East Sussex, and built a series of programmes that provide support for companies at whatever stage you are at.

Ready to Grow is for companies in the first 12 to 18 months of trading who may need advice and information across a range of subjects. To find out more click here or send an email using this link .  

Big Ambitions This programme is now CLOSED to new applications… sorry.

Business growth support for businesses in East Sussex

FREE business support from our teams of experienced business specialists. We want to help take your business to the next level.

Change can create opportunity. If you want to make your business work better and are ready for the challenges, then we are here to help. We have fully funded programmes of support. It’s as simple as A, B or C… so click on the option below that is right for you.
