A Problem Shared is a Problem Solved at The Good Business Club
Brighton is ripe to be ‘the place’ where social enterprises setup and flourish. From pioneering politics, more conscious citizens and a city that truly welcomes diversity, it’s therefore not a surprise to see local people from all walks of life taking the power into their own hands and setting up businesses that are challenging broken systems in our society.
But Brighton hasn’t quite lived up to it’s full potential. There is an overwhelm of choice if you’re looking to setup or grow your' ‘business for good’ but it’s all disconnected and hard to find if you don’t know where to look. The impact this has sees people, with a passion to make a change, feeling isolated and overwhelmed with the task ahead and unfortunately so many of these great ideas don’t see the light of day.
That’s why The Good Business Club (TGBC) was created by Sara Osterholzer and Ruth Anslow. They believe a connected network of like-minded people can do great things for each other and it is what’s needed to make Brighton ‘the place’ for social enterprise.
The Club is a network of like-minded people aspiring, starting up or running social enterprises as well as ‘business for good’ supporters who want to offer their expertise to the people running more purposeful businesses.
“We believe if people are connected they can get unstuck and move their ideas forward much quicker. When you are connected in a network like this you can learn from other peoples experiences, you hear about opportunities and you get personal introductions to people you might not ever have known about or been able to reach”
- Sara Osterholzer, Co-Founder and Connector
Purpose-driven entrepreneurs and teams join The Club to grow their network beyond mainstream business offerings to connect with people who understand that the impact they want to make is are the core of what they do.
