We’re leading the way
Cowes Business Association works closely with other business associations across the island to ensure we are continually growing and leading the way to be better every day.
With the Chair being part of the Isle of Wight Leaders Group, we not only have an insight into what is happening in the Cowes area but also the Island as a whole.
Supporting Cowes businesses and promoting Cowes so that it is recognised as a thriving, resilient, dynamic and prosperous place to live, work and visit.
Improving the business climate
Cowes Business Association provides a raft of business support, by providing valuable services to its members which improve the local business climate.
Membership encourages business owners to get to know one another in order to find ways to share resources, unite on important issues (of which the current COVID-19 emergency is a prime example) and develop new tools for securing their profitability in the community.
With effective leadership and active participation, Cowes Business Association’s ambition is to make it easier for members to make money and also enjoy the process.
Cowes Business Association provides its members with opportunities to network and share information and resources.
Whilst some members are likely to be competitors, they still share certain needs and preferences. (Working together and increasing the amount of overall business and total number of visitors, we can all have a piece of a bigger pie).
Additionally, Cowes Business Association members can help one another directly with referrals for a plethora of services.
Joining Cowes Business Association also provides new businesses with contact information for other local businesses, speeding up the process of integrating into the community.
Not to mention the social side…
For a business owner, the opportunity to integrate with the community provided by membership of Cowes Business Association can be as much of a personal consideration as a business decision. Check out our new social calendar.
Cowes Business Association holds ad hoc, monthly and quarterly events for their members and guests giving them the opportunity to meet with their peers and enjoy the company of fellow business owners and entrepreneurs.
Participation with Cowes Business Association can also add an important social dimension in a community where local business owners and those who share a business interest know one another through work as well as outside of it.
