The Centre for Entrepreneurship supports students and graduates who want to set up their own businesses, work as freelancer or become self-employed.  The University first launched its Student Enterprise programme in 2003 and we were so successful that we established a dedicated Centre soon after.  We are a small team supporting student and graduate start-up companies with professional business advice.  

We run a competitive scheme for students to access a startup grant and provide expert training and advice on how to research the marketplace, write a business plan, and get your idea off the ground. 

The Centre operates a large start-up network that enables us to connect students to mentors, collaborators and potential customers.  

Thanks to the Centre and the support we put in place, LJMU is ranked in the top 25 UK universities for graduate business start-ups.  We make sure that any of our students who have a business idea, no matter what discipline they are studying, can find a whole range of services and personalised support to help turn an idea into reality.
