With locations across the UK, Basepoint Business Centres are not run like ordinary centres. Their mission is to build small to medium size business communities that add value to the areas they are in, rather than simply locate small businesses under one roof.

The Basepoint centre in Crowborough, East Sussex, provides high quality managed workspace, focused on supporting existing SME’s and new business start-ups. Known as Pine Grove Enterprise Centre, it is recognised for its spacious meeting rooms, informal breakout areas and virtual offices.

The next Basepoint Crowborough event on 5 July 2019 opens the floor to the premier business support programmes and providers that are available in East Sussex and the wider South East. Alongside Business East Sussex Growth Hub, you will meet representatives from Locate East Sussex, Clean Growth UK, The Manufacturing Growth Programme, and TALE (Transport and Logistical Efficiencies).

The day will be open to hearing first-hand how five different organisations can prove to be helpful, answering experts in the field of business and innovation questions you wanted to ask. From clean growth to logistics, to traditional business advice and access to funding, the providers will be offering dedicated drop-in sessions part to help SMEs in East Sussex to grow, create jobs in local communities, and expand the local economy.
