  • The Coast to Capital mission is to provide joint public and private sector leadership to drive sustainable private sector led growth and job creation across an area reaching from Brighton & Hove to Croydon and including the Gatwick Diamond and West Sussex. We will do this by boosting enterprise and embedding an even stronger enterprise culture. We will also increase international trade by helping current international traders to trade more and inspiring more businesses to trade internationally. In so doing we will realise every person and place’s potential.
