Hampshire & IOW Business Alliance

Better Business Support to cut costs and raise performance delivered by fewer support organisations.

When we can speak with one united voice we strengthen our ability to represent our members. Quite simply, our aim is to cooperate whenever we can, provide focused business support in the local region, maximise our value to our members and reduce waste.

This County-based Alliance is leading the Business Support community to share their services more widely, working together for mutual advantage. This cohesive approach aims to cut duplication and the cost of Business Support.

Business leaders want a reduction in the cost of business support and fewer support organisations.

Local authorities and LEPs want business support organisations that can deliver.

The largest and key business support organisations have agreed a set of founding principles that will govern their activities and allow them to work to meet all those demands. They have created the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Business Alliance. 

With its ‘one stop' approach, the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Business Alliance provides an easy point of contact for organisations wishing to work with the business community.
