Six Sussex Success Stories

Tell us where to send you the stories of six highly profitable, self-funded businesses that were started by people like you in Sussex.

Create something of lasting value. Help more people than you could ever sell a day of your time to.

Build a businesses not a startup

The stress of starting a startup is not something you have an apetite for. Why would anyone choose to have investors breathing down their necks? You don't want to satisfy their demands. Moving your family to a 'startup hub' isn't an option either. And measuring success only in terms of 10x returns is ridiculous.

Everyone keeps getting excited about billion-dollar software businesses spending vast sums of VC funding. Why don't they realise that the world be better off with a thousand profitable million-dollar businesses instead? You no longer need programmers to create highly profitable businesses that can serve people around the world.

What if you could sustainably earn what you currently earn but it took you half the time? How would you spend those extra hours in the week? Imagine if you could get there in less than two years and you could make the switch with the resources you already have.

Last year's attendees included leaders from:

...alongside dozens of freelancers and small business owners.

  • Hannah Martin

    I loved the day. It was packed with fantastic value (I took SOOO many notes!) and was inspiring to be around so many fellow online entrepreneurs (speakers and other attendees). It also had a friendly, fun and laid back atmosphere - way less corporate than other events I have been to (which is a good thing!). I have been recommending you to people for next year already, and I will certainly be back

  • Running a digital business is lonely. Sometimes especially when you have a room full of people that you are working with or are working for you. Being around others that know that pain and are like you in so many different ways was one of the most encouraging things I have had happen to me in a while.

    Robin Mayfield
  • Izzy Crouch

    If you are serious about a product business you'll need to know what you are doing to avoid mistakes and this conference will help to guide you in the right direction and think very strategically about how to start making money.

  • The people chosen to speak inspired me that I can follow in their footsteps. I feel like I had a positive push in the direction of my goal.

    Simon Rowland
  • Joanne Munro

    The info from the experts was so valuable that you can make the ticket price back almost immediately by applying some of the things they suggested. They could also prevent someone from making a costly mistake thus saving them the ticket price that way too.

  • The conference was intimate, inclusive and highly relevant for the audience. The speakers shared solid advice and told good stories.

Been through the VC-mill. Technology guy, but loves making things, not the technology itself.

Jon & Andy have spent over ten years working with digital product businesses. Although software engineers by trade, they’ve seen first-hand how technology is far from being the most important thing in digital product businesses.

They’ve felt the soul-crushing results of too many investment-fixated startups. They’ve enjoyed the rewards of seeing independent businesses flourish through bootstrapping their own way to success.
