Profitnet has been created by the University of Brighton and is delivered as part of the Brighton Research Information Technology Exchange (BRITE) project. Profitnet is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and fully funded for eligible SMEs.

Profitnet is just like having your own board of non-executive directors. You can discuss whatever you want and I’ve found over the years the input I’ve had has been absolutely vital as a sounding board for plans, ideas and challenges.

 The ability to have a group who I can bounce ideas and issues off is invaluable.
