Is your East Sussex based business less than 12 months old?

We’ve assembled a team of practicing business professionals  and built a programme designed to give small groups of local business less than 12 months old access to this wide range of expertise. All for free, funded through the South East Business Boost.

You start with some time working one to one with an experienced Growth Advisor (either Gavin McWhirter or James Mackrill) to develop an outline growth plan, and then over a 10-week period there will be 10 small-group, informal workshops covering strategy, growth planning, marketing, finance, improving your website, planning, developing a sales process, recruitment, product development and branding.

Each group will also have access to a range of Master Classes.    

Every business has access a rapid business assessment – which is free for any company in East Sussex.

  • The Rapid Business Assessment will give you recommendations and advice, personalised according the the answers you provided
  • Instant download of the report for your business
  • 3-hours of 1-to-1 support with a business advisor
  • 10 small group workshops with different subject matter experts
  • Free access to a series of Master Classes on specialist topic or to cover subjects in more depth

 

Step 1 is to complete the Rapid Business Assessment. You can do it now, online via the button below. It takes just 3-5 minutes.
