The University of Brighton has re-launched its hugely successful business collaboration network which drives innovation and growth amongst small and medium enterprises.
Businesses in the Greater Brighton and Coast to Capital area will share experiences in problem solving and developing opportunities within their businesses.
Profitnet brings owners and managers together in confidence once a month over a period of 14 months to discuss their challenges and to access resources and expertise from the University of Brighton including student placements, training opportunities and knowledge exchange.
Previous Profitnet members have seen their businesses expand as a direct result of the programme. Keith Pordum, Managing Director of one of the UK’s top food vending companies, said: “My four year involvement with Profitnet was critical to the success of Bon Appetit in becoming the leading hot food vending specialist. The contribution I received from Profitnet colleagues was something I greatly valued as a sounding board for the innovative ideas we were considering. I strongly recommend Profitnet for any business that wants to grow to the next level.”
There will be Profitnet groups running across the Coast to Capital area including Newhaven and Brighton, and in the Gatwick Diamond area.
Initial taster sessions will run in Newhaven for environmentally focussed companies on 8 May, and for businesses in any sector in the Manor Royal in Crawley on 5 June.
