Our City has been the envy of most in the UK when it comes to business start up and industry diversity. We have over 8000 businesses now registered in Portsmouth and we were named as the most entrepreneurial city in 2020.
The number of fee and free Business support services being offered in the city each year keeps growing as do the number of organisations providing these services. Our own support offerings have been a key factor in the growth we have seen over the past 10 years and we are well placed to take advantage of both the technological and skills revolution we are going to witness in the next 10 years.
In order to maintain Portsmouth’s leading role in this area of business support, Shaping Portsmouth is hosting a conference of all the major providers of this type of support later this year (subject to the UK’s Covid roadmap). This face to face meeting will be held in the City centre and at present we have 23 providers who have indicated they wish to attend.
Our vision is to build one comprehensive portal for all providers and businesses to use to gain information and access to any type of provision, whether that is fee or free. In association with our Partners at the Portsmouth City Council and the Solent LEP we want to be the beacon city in the UK for this activity and thereby attracting inward investment and a sustainable growth in our business numbers.
If you are a provider of any such services and wish to be involved in this conference please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I or one of my team will be in touch with you.
