A new digital platform to showcase Adur & Worthing's bright burgeoning business community has been launched.
The Adur & Worthing Business Partnership are pleased to announce their new and improved Business Portal which will help to improve communication between business community, partners and stakeholders as well as showcase innovation and talent across the area.
With an interactive feel and e-bulletin facility, the portal has been designed to promote business activities across the area quicker and to a wider audience.
The first e-bulletin will go out early April. Businesses are encouraged to feed into the site on a range of themes including local economic success, community involvement and sponsorship opportunities.
Cllr Kevin Jenkins, Worthing Borough Council's Executive Member for Regeneration, said:
“Adur and Worthing have ambitious plans for how the place will achieve “good growth”. This 'good growth' is not about growth at any price; but one that balances economic success with the best quality of life for our people, sustains our natural assets and the environment and continues to attract increasing numbers of visitors.
Worthing is an increasingly popular business location with great transport and digital connections, a popular seaside destination for visitors and a place whose residents enjoy an enviable quality of life.
Worthing Borough Council is a strong supporter of local businesses and has an important role in helping to create, define and lead on place shaping and promoting good growth. I believe that this new business portal will showcase the work, skills and enterprise that currently exists within Worthing and provide a gateway between businesses for future growth, innovation and economic prosperity”.
Cllr Brian Boggis Adur District Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, said:
“The launch of the new Portal will give one stop access to all that’s going on in the Adur Business Community, providing direct links to the many areas of support available to both the exciting new businesses being set up in the District, as well as those more established businesses, that continue to grow and provide ongoing prosperity. Already off to a good start, 2018 is going to be an exciting year for Adur and the new Portal can only contribute further to our growth.”
