The Coast to Capital Business Navigator initiative, including a website and business support team, is proving so popular that the project has been extended until March 31st 2016. Business Navigator was launched by the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership alongside West Sussex County Council. The service for businesses in Coastal West Sussex is now based in Shoreham by Sea in the Northbrook College campus site. A brand new telephone team, as well as two senior Business Navigators, are based at the campus.
The website at www.c2cbusiness.org.uk includes an online directory of business support organisations and a calendar of business events in and around the local area. Business can search for relevant support services, funding and training opportunities.
Malcolm Brabon, Growth Development Manager for Coast to Capital, recently explained the benefits of the Business Navigator service: “Through the growth hub service we provide support in two ways – a website for business support to help businesses identify support that is relevant to them both locally, regionally and nationally. We also, very importantly, have a team of business support navigators that help businesses find the support that is appropriate to them.”
