About Us 


GBSLEP’s mission is to drive the economic growth of the Greater Birmingham and Solihull area, creating jobs and increasing the quality of life for all our residents.

The Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership Limited (GBSLEP) was established in 2010 as a partnership of business, public sector and further and higher education leaders. 

The area we cover spans nine local authorities: Birmingham, Solihull, East Staffordshire, Cannock Chase, Lichfield, Tamworth, Redditch, Bromsgrove and Wyre Forest.

As a collaborative partnership, we work for the benefit of everyone who lives and works in the GBSLEP area. This collaborative and business focused approach enables us to target interventions for maximum benefit to the local economy.
