Blackpool Unlimited is the ‘go to’ platform for business support
At the heart of business in Blackpool (brought to you by Blackpool Council).
Call in to see us at the #centre4enterprise It was established by a partnership between the Blackpool Business Leadership Group, (established in 2006 by a small group of business leaders to encourage improved communication between the private and public sectors, and support the wider economic development of the town) and Blackpool Council in order to help businesses realise their potential.
Why? Because we passionately believe that nurturing and energising local businesses will help build a bigger and better Blackpool.
Within this website you will find a wealth of information to help you and your business – whether you are a new business, an established business – or someone who is just thinking about going into business. The advice and information on our website is wide ranging – but because it’s updated every day you should find it up-to-date and relevant. However, we are aware that not everyone wants to search a website for information; sometimes people in business prefer to talk to someone either on the phone or face-to-face. So if you want to speak to one of our advisors on the telephone, simply call 01253 477 147 and we will point you in the right direction. There’s no charge for any of these services – our aim is quite simply to try to help businesses in Blackpool to prosper.
We run EVENTS for new and small/medium businesses:
