About Cowes Business Association

Supporting businesses across Cowes, East Cowes, Northwood and Gurnard

Cowes Business Association was established in the early 80’s and is managed on a non-profit making basis by a committee of volunteers – business owners and entrepreneurs – to provide support to local businesses, individuals, and organisations in Cowes, East Cowes, Gurnard and Northwood.

The vision of the Cowes Business Association is:

Supporting Cowes businesses and promoting Cowes so that it is recognised as a thriving, resilient, dynamic and prosperous place to live, work and visit.

How do we do this?

We are a community working together and we can all help each other with our expertise, knowledge, friendship and the community spirit we foster to ensure all our businesses thrive.

Support. Encourage. Promote

We are here to support, encourage and promote your business and we are able to do this by:

  • Monthly newsletters – these include business owner profiles as well as details of upcoming networking events and news.
  • Networking events – some simple drop in events while other networking events have guest speakers which could benefit you or your business. (Sadly All virtual at the moment but will be in person again as soon as its safe to do so)
  • Membership directory – this directory is where you can showcase your business and find sources for services or goods you might be looking for
Cowes Business Association Membership

We encourage members to get to know one another. Through shared experience and knowledge business owners may be able to share resources, unite on important issues and/or develop new tools to increase profitability. With this collaboration we create a community and atmosphere that encourages healthy competition and increases growth. With good leadership and active participation from members we can work together to develop our businesses and enjoy the process.

Our vision is to be recognised as a thriving, resilient, dynamic and prosperous place to live, work and visit all year round.

Our mission is to encourage, support and promote all businesses in Cowes.

Through networking, communications and collaboration we are proactive by supporting, encouraging and promoting all businesses that are members of the Cowes Business Association.
