Brighton is a vibrant and dynamic city, making it the ideal place to set up a new business.

Brighton has enjoyed a successful start to 2012 with 982 new companies being set up in the first half of the year, more than any first six months on record for the town. It is also a clear improvement on 2011, when only 877 companies were formed during the same period.

The town has the chance to boost its economy still further, as it has been awarded £50,000 by the government’s innovation agency to undertake a feasibility study to show how the city can join up its transport, communications and other infrastructure. The council will use the study to submit a large-scale ‘future cities demonstrator’, showing how challenges in the city will be addressed. If successful, the city will be in line for £24 million of funding to implement its proposals.

Council leader Jason Kitcat said:

“We will be working closely with partners to develop the next stage of our bid to be a ‘sustainable super city’, but this is only achievable through integrating smart city systems and encouraging innovation in the public and private sector.”

Managing Director of Duport.co.uk said:

“Brighton is a vibrant and dynamic city, making it the ideal place to set up a new business. If the ‘future city’ bid is successful it will give a huge boost to the local economy and strengthen the infrastructure, providing a sound basis for growth.”

It seems that new companies can look forward to an exciting future in Brighton for many years to come.
