Money growing

Here at Business East Sussex we had a great year in 2017.

But don’t just take our word for it. Check out our infographic  below. It outlines  how successful we were in helping businesses and entrepreneurs across the East Sussex region.

We’re delighted to say we agreed grants of £325k, helped start 12 news businesses and invested £1.25m in the East Sussex economy thanks to our grants and business support.

So, why not tap into the support we can offer?


Like In Situ Site Investigation did when it needed specialist equipment to help it progress its business. The St Leonards-based firm, which is a specialist in geotechnical and geo-environmental site investigation, bought a brand new Morooka rig which has been added to its fleet of specialist investigation equipment. As Phil Harper, In Situ’s Finance Director, explained at the time: “Working with Business East Sussex to obtain the £8k we needed for it was easy enough. Some forms, but lots of guidance on them. I’d definitely recommend for other businesses to use the service.”

If you’re an entrepreneur with an idea for a new business or an established company that needs help to grow then get in touch with us… we’re happy to help.
