Join the Start-Up Network
An ecosystem of entrepreneurship with over 1,200 members
If you’re looking to make contacts with the business community, then the Start-Up Network is for you. During the sessions, which are held either online or face-to-face, you’ll not only be able to talk to other start-ups, but you’ll also meet members from leading Merseyside businesses and supportive organisations. Previously, representatives from Santander, Hurricane Films and Rex Liverpool.
Gavin Sherratt, the founder of Studio Mashbo and named as one of Insider’s 42 under 42 list, finds the Start-Up Network so useful he’s been an active member since 2007.
Why is networking important?
When we spoke to our graduates about how they launched successful businesses they all said that having a network of useful contacts was vital. Here are just a few of the benefits you’ll gain by joining the Network:
• You’ll build an impressive contacts book
• You’ll learn from other start-ups and business experts
• You’ll have the chance to sound out your ideas and develop those ideas using other people’s input
Can I join the Start-Up Network?
The Start-Up Network is for current Liverpool John Moores University students or graduates who are thinking about becoming self-employed or freelancing.
