Hundreds of Brighton businesses take advantage of £3 million Green Growth Platform

Brighton university’s £3 million Green Growth Platform has already benefitted almost 260 companies, just five months after its launch.

The businesses that sign up to the platform’s business growth services, can benefit from a range of support including one-to-one business coaching, events and networking, innovation/research and development and skills and training workshops.

The platform is leading a number of innovation and research and development projects, to develop new products and services that will contribute to a greener economy.

One example is Waterblade, a new device that fits to a tap and reduces water consumption by up to twice as much as a standard eco aerating nozzle.

The platform has helped inventor Nigel Bamford go from initial idea to exploring entry to market.

A Green Growth Platform MSc module has been developed with Dr Helen Walker, Lecturer, in the School of Environment and Technology, which will give students the opportunity to take part in an accredited placement with member businesses.
