Welcome to the Sussex Business Academy

helping-handThe Sussex Business Academy is designed for people who have started or wish to start their own business. Now is the time to stop dreaming and to kick into action!

These workshops will take your idea, product or service and help you build, using a uniquely designed folder, your business plan; allowing you to track progress and retain key pieces of information. This is not a theory lecture, it is a “hands-on” session run by renowned local entrepreneur Tim Breden.

Tim founded the Sussex Business Partnership in 2009 after being a part of the great team that sold the hugely successful Kate’s Cakes in 2007. Since then Tim has invested in many Sussex based businesses and has worked with and mentored many others to create a business, further develop their company or the people within it.  Tim is hands-on, this isn’t text book, its real life experience, sound knowledge, judgement and a great support network.

The course will take you through the initial setting up process, will explain how to build your business plan, help you consider how and where to actually start your business, it will look at the financial aspects and where to raise, if necessary, additional funding from.

The course will accommodate around a dozen people, these are all people in a similar position to yourself. You don’t need a depth of knowledge; this is what the course is for. It’s not a “team development” process or a stuffy learning environment, right from the start you’ll feel relaxed and feel you’re making progress in turning that long held dream into a reality.

We have tried to put on more places but don’t have the time at the moment so please grab one of these whilst they are available.

  • 5 hour “hands-on” workshop

  • Tea & Coffee
  • Branded Goodies
  • And bags of experience and anecdotes from Tim Breden
