Supporting Entrepreneurs and SMEs

At the Management School we strongly value links with our local community and welcome opportunities for discussions, activities and projects that support our City Region’s growth.

Talent Development

Our Growth Catalyst programmes are open programmes designed specifically for owner/managers of SMEs in the Liverpool City Region.  The focus is on leadership development and business growth with practical, implementable outcomes.


At the Management School we understand the importance of connecting businesses with each other and with our University communities.  Sharing knowledge, experience and challenges can lead to exciting collaborations and projects, with novel approaches and implementable solutions.  Our Business Breakfasts provide an opportunity for people to come together and discuss topical themes that impact and influence businesses.

Local policy

Our academic staff are members of the Heseltine Institute, which helps shape public policy via its research and consultancy into place, policy and practice. Examples include regeneration, the social economy, housing, skills, jobs and business growth. The Institute holds regular events and workshops to encourage discussion between practitioners and academics to help inform practice, which affect industry and the economy.
