Brighton isn’t exactly among the most high profile cities in the UK when it comes to big business, with the majority of larger corporations basing themselves within major hubs such as London or Manchester, but according to a recent survey conducted by office broking service provider Instant Offices, the city of Brighton may have a lot to offer when it comes to start-ups and entrepreneurs.

The Instant Offices survey consisted of the analysis of data provided by Companies House, which was then compared against population estimates and business growth rates in order to ascertain those UK cities which have the most to offer in terms of entrepreneurial endeavours; the city of Brighton and Hove ultimately prevailed as a clear winner.

Brighton’s entrepreneurial appeal is attributed to a number of factors ranging from a huge talent pool throughout the region, to solid infrastructure which enables efficient business operations. Perhaps the greatest contributing factor however is actually provided by the University of Brighton, which offers a widely-credited Master of Business Administration course which cultivates the entrepreneurial mind-set of those involved and promotes the establishment of new businesses.

The report justifies Brighton’s position in the top spot as follows:

“Brighton has clinched top spot, with its strong creative industry.

“There’s definitely something in the air and the University of Brighton MBA program is an enticing proposition for those looking to start their own business in a more relaxed atmosphere than some of the other metropolitan hubs in the UK.

“With its dynamic business environment, solid infrastructure, huge talent pool and vibrant start-up culture, it’s no surprise an entrepreneurial spirit persists in the UK.”

John Williams, head of marketing at Instant Offices, said of Brighton’s standing within the report, “I can understand the appeal of Brighton and the south coast of England.

“It is a bit of an antidote to the hustle and bustle of the capital while possessing a strong, creative industry and really appealing to business owners and workers seeking a more relaxed alternative to London.

“We have seen record demand for office space in Brighton and also a large increase in the number of operators trying to set up space in the city to cater for its growing business community.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the University of Brighton’s Business School commented on the praise the course has received, “We’re pleased our professionally-accredited MBA programme has been credited in this way. We have been producing high-quality MBA graduates for over 25 years.”
