Business South – Serving the Central South UK
Business South supports the prosperity of the Central South UK region by working with our Champions and Partners to attract more investment, business and talent to the region. We are a business engagement organisation bringing together business leaders, public bodies, educators and entrepreneurs to create a powerful and dominant voice for growth and change, both in the private and public sectors.
As a supporter of Venturefest South, we’re delighted to work with our Partners to showcase the best in innovation, digital technology, funding and knowledge sharing.
Enterprise South, our partnering organisation, provides support for pre-starts, start-ups and existing business owners across the south. Services include professional 1-2-1 advice, start-up courses, masterclasses, useful resources, access to finance and associated tools and managed workspaces.
Business South has many close connections with partners who are at the top of the innovation league, and subsequently, we bring these partners together by hosting the successful Digital South Action Group. The group focuses on promoting the Central South as a digital hub, where innovation and technology are leading the way in making businesses more efficient and better connected. The digital economy is growing and is integral to the region’s future. Our aim is to work in collaboration with organisations to support and promote digital excellence.
Our Champion Programme
We work with over 200 regional Champions and Partners to deliver high-level events while collaborating and working strategically with our five action groups and campaign for a better economic outcome through our engagement and research. We promote the excellent work that our Champions are undertaking and offer them a widespread platform to engage and exchange best practice and local knowledge with likeminded companies and professionals.
