Are you an environmental or low carbon business based in Sussex? Can you demonstrate your growth potential? You may be eligible for our free 1-2-1 business support.
We’ll explore what growth looks like for you, in terms of increased turnover, profit, staff levels and if you are planning to launch new products, services or access new markets. If you’re Thinking BIG, we'll meet with you to understand the barriers you are facing and identify the best ways we can help take your business to the next level.
Your growth plan will identify the provision of any specialist support your business may need such as coaching, training or innovation advice. The Business Support Manager will work closely with you to implement this plan and ensure it leads to positive development for your business.
We have a team of specialist advisors with expertise in areas such as marketing strategy, raising finance & investment, business processes, procurement and exporting. You may also be linked in to our other service areas (e.g. business events, training or innovation support) and other government funded services (e.g. Growth Accelerator, Manufacturing Advisory Service or UK Trade and Investment).
We can help you identify and access finance to grow your business - whether it’s a grant, loan, crowd-funding or other finance and investments options. We have an up-to-date listing of a wide range of funds which we are happy to share and advisors who are expert at helping to access these funds.
