Grow Digital West Sussex…

is a series of free, carefully curated workshops, facilitated networking and 121 mentoring that is traveling across West Sussex between September 2023 to April 2024 to support local businesses on all things digital. It will provide opportunities for local businesses to improve their digital capabilities, connect with other businesses and receive 121 support. Each themed day will focus on a core topic area, meaning that you can pick the day or days that are most relevant for you. Our four core themes will cover websites, social media, selling online and productivity hacks.

In partnership with the District Borough Councils, Freedom Works, Wired Sussex, Creative Bloom and Shake It Up Creative, the content of this program has been carefully designed based on insights from previous West Sussex County Council business support as well as speaking to a range of local businesses about what support they require in this area.

In a nutshell, it’s a great opportunity to leverage local expertise whilst networking and enjoying the best of local foods, but here’s the detail.

West Sussex County Council’s new Grow Digital program is coming in September with the aim of supporting local businesses.
