Coast to Capital Plans New Business Portal

Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership and West Sussex County Council are jointly commissioning the development of a web based ‘portal’ that will provide businesses within the Coast to Capital area with an online directory of business support (from both national and local providers).

Businesses do not always know where to go to identify the services they need to develop and grow. This portal will provide a focal point to find information and sources of support, making access to information easier. This will mean that businesses will not have to visit miscellaneous websites to get the information on business support that they need.

This new portal will be provided by CareTechnica. A CareTechnica spokesman says: ‘Our approach is to collaborate with Coast to Capital LEP and West Sussex to produce, maintain and continually improve a solution for a business support portal that fully meets the needs of business people, support organisations and commissioning bodies

The focus is to help local businesses survive, grow and succeed, thus supporting local economic development and employment’.

Ron Crank, Chief Executive of Coast to Capital says – ‘The idea for Business Navigator came with the ending of local Business Link advisory services and is in line with Lord Heseltine’s recent recommendation to ensure the provision of greater local support for businesses. We are very pleased to be offering this innovative service’.
