Locate East Sussex's Business Impact
Since 2020, Locate East Sussex has aided small to medium sized businesses currently in or planning on moving to the county with advice on topics such as business development, business strategy, financial planning, business funding, and commercial property to help them develop and grow.
We believe in providing support as unique as your business. We have supported over 850 businesses through our service in the last two years, as well as helped 41 businesses to relocate into the county.
“I am in the process of launching my food company and start trading in East Sussex. I reached out to receive guidance and additional business support. So far, working with Business Manager, Emily, has been easy and helpful in organizing a detailed plan of actions to make this launch a reality.”
Simona Mansbridge, Your Dream Chef
“A friend recommended getting in touch with Locate East Sussex and I am extremely glad I did. Emily and Jim have provided great support in several key areas including finding workshop locations, understanding local grant availability, and financial planning. I would not have made some of these contacts without them and now feel more confident in my business plan going forward.”

Our free business support programme is fully-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, East Sussex County Council and the Districts and Borough Councils of East Sussex. Thanks to our direct access to business grants and loans, we are able to continue helping businesses looking to start, grow or relocate to East Sussex.
