Our History

Lanarkshire Enterprise Services Limited (LESL) was established in 2002 through the acquisition/amalgamation of the 7 Lanarkshire Enterprise Trusts, so our history dates back to 1986. With 25 years experience, we have developed a deep knowledge of the enterprise and economic development landscape in Scotland, the organisations that are key to economic regeneration and of new and growing SME's.

We are a non-profit distributing organisation with a non executive board drawn from the business and professional sector. Our original purpose was to support the growth of the economy in Lanarkshire through the promotion of entrepreneurship and the provision of information, advice and support to new or growing SME's & social enterprises.
