Digital Champions

FREE digital support to drive small business success

UPDATE: Due to limited funding, the programme is only available for established businesses. However, if you are not yet an established business please find support through the University of Chichester Hothouse Programme.

Please contact the Growth Hub team to discuss your support requirements.

Following a diagnostic review our Business Account Managers will be able to facilitate an introduction to an appropriate Growth Champion to meet your needs.

To benefit from this funding the business needs to be established for more than 2 years, trading and have recovery and growth potential.

Funding may be available to support one days of Growth Champion support managed by the Growth Relationship Associate team.
