The West Sussex Business Hub:
A Growing Community of Independent Business Owners

Digital Islands created the West Sussex Business Hub in 2022, as a place where the owners of independent businesses across the county can find help, advice, events, training and useful resources to support development and growth.

The forerunner to the Business Hub was a website set up specifically for retailers in the county during the Pandemic. This site included 10 modules of video based training material across subject areas where the owners of smaller businesses often have challenges, including  digital marketing. These resources have all been transferred over to the new Business Hub, along with adding additional training, event information, resource sections, specialist groups and other new capability and content.  

The Hub is run by Digital Islands with the support of local business owners and the 7 District and Borough Councils in West Sussex.  

The West Sussex Business Hub is a gateway to information, training, events, advice, grants and other resources for independent businesses.

The Business Hub is organised into the following sections

Business Events

Training & Business Advice

Grant Information

Local Businesses News

Technology and Digitisation

Local Food & Drink

Market Traders
