Announcing a new business support programme for Brighton & Hove.

The Confident Business series starts in March.

This new business support programme is for businesses in Brighton & Hove that have been adversely affected by the pandemic and are now looking to review and reboot with confidence. The Confident Business series is designed to provide the tools and knowledge for business owners wanting to adapt their business model; and to help them survive and thrive beyond 2022. This five month programme is led by the Business & IP Centre (BIPC) Brighton & Hove and delivered by Brighton Chamber and always possible. Starting in March, and running for five months, it’s free to sign-up and take part. It’s aimed at established businesses, sole traders, micro businesses and start-ups. The tailored support is also designed for businesses that face additional barriers including women founders, and Black, Asian and minority ethnic entrepreneurs. The programme includes small group workshops on key topics (Pitch, Price, Customers and Tech); one-to-one advice sessions with business experts; and peer-to-peer networking sessions to connect with other local businesses. Case studies will share their business journeys and there will be Q & As with experts. Businesses taking part will have a great experience, will learn and make valuable connections with other businesses. This series of events and support provides business owners with the chance to step away and think strategically about their business. READ MORE ABOUT THE SERIES
