According to the Southern Daily Echo, the new brand is being launched at the Rose Bowl where details of the move will be explained.
Southampton, Winchester, the Isle of Wight, the New Forest, Bournemouth and Poole, Portsmouth and Chichester will all be covered by the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership.
The Business Southampton model has received increasing demand to expand since its launch in 2007, where it currently hosts a group of 170 leading local employers who discuss strategies to make the region a hub for new business.
The new focus will aim to promote the region as a place where businesses can thrive and commercial opportunities can flourish.
“The launch of Business Solent will be a great opportunity for businesses in the region to work together to promote the Solent as a great place to work, invest, study, live and enjoy,” commented Sally Lynskey, Business Southampton chief executive, to the Southern Daily Echo.
The Solent Local Enterprise Partnership is led by the region’s business community and four university partners.
The area currently has a population of over 1.3 million and about 50,000 businesses and is already recognised as a functional economic area.
The Partnership is hoping to create an environment that will better facilitate growth for the region and create more jobs so new businesses can grow and prosper.
