We provide free and impartial government funded business support in Greater Brighton, West Sussex, East Surrey and Croydon which can help your ambitious and innovative business achieve growth.

How can we help you scale?

The Growth Hub helps ambitious businesses thrive by:

  • Challenging, encouraging and enabling strategic change
  • Connecting you to experts, investors and funders
  • Helping you develop national and international opportunities

We run a series of initiatives and support programmes which facilitate this, such as our Escalator Programme which helps scale-up and growth potential businesses through a series of facilitated peer to peer groups focusing on barriers to growth with solution-driven outcomes.
