Inspiring business success for Blackpool Enterprise Week

Blackpool Council is hosting a week of free and professional events (13-17 November) across the resort, aimed to inspire and boost local entrepreneurs and established businesses alike, for its annual Enterprise Week (BEW).

Leading lights from the resort’s business community will be on hand to share their experiences to delegates at a number of information-packed seminars across Blackpool.

Enterprise Week will run in conjunction with Global Entrepreneurship Week, the world’s largest campaign to promote enterprise, playing a critical role in encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs to consider starting up their own business.

The activities at the Enterprise Centre, the Winter Gardens and the Solaris Centre, range from large-scale events to intimate networking gatherings, and connect participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors.

The council’s Business Support Team will be hosting this week of free workshops, some targeted at those who are thinking of starting a business, and some for those who are well established.

A wide range of topics including finance, on-line marketing and selling will be covered as well as the basics of how to start your business and a session on creating customer focussed business models.

The British Business Bank will also be attending BEW. The organisation is co-ordinating the delivery by partners of several funding streams as part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund. Fund Managers will be describing their offerings and will be available to talk to local businesses about how to apply for the funds to fuel further growth.

Cllr Mark Smith, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Enterprise and Economic Development, said: “Blackpool has long had a reputation for creating entrepreneurs – people with bright ideas who are prepared to turn them into viable businesses.

“Through initiatives such as Blackpool Unlimited and Get Started we’ve ensured there’s expert help available to turn hundreds of good ideas into sound businesses.

“Take this opportunity to explore your potential and exciting opportunities through a quality selection of free and professional events, where people can share expertise in the hope of bringing new ideas to life.”
