Reset. Restart was a programme of free business support delivered earlier this year by Brighton Chamber and always possible in partnership with the Business & IP Centre Brighton & Hove.

The flexible programme included facilitated networking events, 1:1 mentoring support and a series of four workshops – all held online.
