Blackpool Enterprise Week is back for 2018 with the popular event taking place between 12 – 16 November at various locations across the Fylde Coast.

Following the success of 2017, with over 300 people attending, the week-long event offers free business learning, boot camps, drop in sessions and thought-provoking events for all stages and types of businesses.

The 2018 programme will appeal to those who are thinking about starting a business or have just started their business giving them the opportunity to attend free events with practical, implementable advice. The Get Started Boot Camps will focus on marketing, financial planning, and accounting to help set solid, practical business foundations.

Established and growing businesses will be able to find out more about the funding opportunities available to Blackpool businesses.

Cllr Mark Smith, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Enterprise and Economic Development, said: “It’s essential for us to support our local business community. That’s what Blackpool Enterprise Week is about, with 18 free to attend events full of insight, inspiration and practical advice for businesses at every stage of their development.

Blackpool Enterprise Week provides the perfect platform to deliver expert help and has something for everyone; from those in their infancy, helping them turn their ideas into sound and sustainable plans, to supporting more established companies with their growth aspirations.”

The “Show Me The Money” event on Tuesday 13 November, sponsored by British Business Bank, will share how to attract funding and financial support and  provides an opportunity to meet the people with the money.

On Friday 16th experts from Google will be delivering a Digital Garage Workshop designed to provide practical advice and examples to assist small businesses to improve their online presence and visibility.
