Let’s put Worthing on the small business map
Contrary to popular belief the largest population demographic in Worthing is the 16-44 year old range; an age range which supports an ever growing number of entrepreneurs, keen to start and grow local businesses. However, given those statistics Worthing is still lagging behind compared with the South East in general*.
So, with an ever-changing economy and potential talent on our doorstep what do we need to do to encourage potential entrepreneurs to thrive in our town?
Both new and growing businesses generally need 4 main ingredients to survive, which are: Hands on management assistance, access to finance, business and technical support services and a collaborative working environment, with access to peer-to-peer support.
Tipton Marketing is proud to be working with Jon Trigg Founder & MD of a new workspace initiative, Freedom Works. Trigg believes that by providing new and growing businesses with the right environment to encourage and facilitate growth, Worthing should be able to rival its shoulder towns in encouraging and developing these new businesses.
“We recognised that Worthing needed more co-working environments, as these do play a large part in helping businesses thrive, and we are pleased to be playing our part in that,” commented Trigg, who is currently refurbishing 5,000 sq ft of old offices in Worthing Town Centre to create a fresh, open and collaborative office environment.
“These individuals and businesses may grow stronger and larger with the right connections which is why I founded Freedom Works. Our flexible offering will allow those looking to expand their companies the space and environment to grow. We will focus on providing back bedroom businesses and home workers a simple ‘plug and play’ environment to help get their ideas off the ground or build upon them.”
Those looking for larger premises may also be interested in one of the many purpose built, modern office spaces available alongside free beer Fridays and regular networking events for all.
“We all want the talent that is from Worthing to stay in Worthing and for everyone to be proud of our town”.
