Traditional business support often misses the mark – perhaps you feel it’s not right for you. Maybe you’re tired of feeling like you’re a square peg in a round hole?

So we’re offering a programme for East Sussex* businesses that will amplify your voice and take your business to the next level. >BREAKTHROUGH is a unique, fully-funded, power-up package of support tailored to your business. Watch this video to find out more or click here to read our case studies.

*** 05/09/22 Please note this programme is now closed to new applicants. Click here to read about our summer celebratory event. ***

What would you do with up to 12 hours of free business mentoring, workshops and exclusive resources tailored specifically to you?

Maybe you’d like to develop an idea, product or service and you’re in need of more opportunities for investment, training and personal development. Perhaps you’ve been wanting to go up to the next level but feeling stuck?

The value of >BREAKTHROUGH is that somebody is absolutely focused with intent on your product or services, and who you are and how you can grow – so it is bespoke.

Aimed at female-led and ethnic minorities-led small and medium-sized businesses who want to fly high, >BREAKTHROUGH will provide your business with a clearer sense of purpose. Our team will support you to realise your potential for growth and help increase your confidence to access support and available networks.

Whether scaling or diversifying, innovating or surviving, >BREAKTHROUGH invites you to be part of a fresh and diverse story about East Sussex businesses that’s itching to be told.

Economic data shows that female and black, asian and minority ethnic business leaders in East Sussex are less likely to access business support programmes than anyone else.

My session with Meg was really useful. She’s a mine of information and highlighted some areas I hadn’t considered before. It’s been really good getting all this great info from always possible and a good opportunity to be working on the business instead of just in it.
