Why be a Business South


Business South should be seen as an extra resource for your business to draw on in terms of circulating your key business messaging, making important contacts and using our well-established communication channels.

Business South Champions form a diverse business network which includes leaders from both the public and private sectors. Champions benefit from opportunities to connect with key stakeholders to influence positive change.

We are based in Southampton but operate throughout Hampshire, Dorset, Isle of Wight, Surrey and Sussex. Our region has four Local Enterprise Partnerships including Solent, EM3, Dorset, and Coast to Capital.

We work with over 50 Local Authorities, 10 Universities and many of the top business brands in the UK.

  • Increased profile
  • More connections
  • Peer group networking
  • More B2B opportunities
  • Knowledge sharing and best practice
  • Being the voice for business to Central Government
  • Part of the largest business network in the South
