The Good Business Club helps social enterprises in and around Brighton start up, grow and scale their impact. They offer social entrepreneurs bespoke support to tackle the challenges and obstacles that come with running a ‘business for good’.

Sussex Innovation Centre is proud to count ourselves among the Good Business Club’s network of support organisations. We regularly play host to its ‘pop-up problem solving’ sessions, enabling social entrepreneurs to meet and share advice – keep an eye on our events pages for the next meet-up.

There are hundreds of people in Greater Brighton creating or supporting ‘businesses for good’, but they are dispersed and hard to find if you don’t know where to look. When people are disconnected, they end up struggling on their own, which holds them back from starting, running or growing their social enterprise. It results in a lot of untapped potential and missed opportunities to create social and economic value locally.

The Good Business Club was co-founded by Sara Osterholzer and Ruth Anslow in December 2018 to inspire, support and connect local social entrepreneurs through a network of like-minded people. Sarah and Ruth believe that collaboration is key to a thriving social enterprise sector in Brighton and beyond.
