Providing local information for business
Welcome to BusinessLincolnshire, the local website that links you to schemes and services that can help you start or grow your business.
Developed and managed by Lincolnshire County Council in partnership with local business owners and private sector representatives, the site introduces you to a range of topics that need consideration when starting or growing a business.
We know that it can be difficult to find out about support and advice schemes so this site has been developed to help local business owners, and people thinking of starting a business, find the information in one place. Find out how best to search this site here|.
BusinessLincolnshire also provides a weekly roundup of local business news, has searchable lists of local Contacts and Networking Groups and provides case studies, tips and articles for inspiration.
If you are a provider of business support or have an event you wish to promote to the business community you can submit your details here|.
We are reviewing and adding to the site continuously and welcome your feedback|.
Please note: This site has many links to the Business Link website, the national, Government funded site that provides a greater level of detail to the business issues that we introduce here. The Business Link website changed on 17th October 2012 and a brand new Government website has been launched www.gov.uk| that incorporates content from both the Business Link site and the DirectGov site. We are in the process of ensuring that all the links are changed accordingly.
